A Trapped Mercury 199 Ion Frequency Standard
HEWLETT-PACKARD LABS PALO ALTO CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Mercury 199 ions confined in an RF quadrupole trap and optically pumped by mercury 202 ion resonance light form the basis for a high performance frequency standard with commercial possibilities. This report describes some results achieved to date and gives estimates of the potential performance of such a standard.
