Using diode lasers for atomic physics
We present a review of the use of diode lasers in atomic physics with an extensive list of references. We discuss the relevant characteristics of diode lasers and explain how to purchase and useExpand

Magnetic field-induced spectroscopy of forbidden optical transitions with application to lattice-based optical atomic clocks.
We develop a method of spectroscopy that uses a weak static magnetic field to enable direct optical excitation of forbidden electric-dipole transitions that are otherwise prohibitively weak. TheExpand

A microfabricated atomic clock
Fabrication techniques usually applied to microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are used to reduce the size and operating power of the core physics assembly of an atomic clock. With a volume ofExpand

Microfabricated alkali atom vapor cells
We describe the fabrication of chip-sized alkali atom vapor cells using silicon micromachining and anodic bonding technology. Such cells may find use in highly miniaturized atomic frequencyExpand

Direct excitation of the forbidden clock transition in neutral 174Yb atoms confined to an optical lattice.
We report direct single-laser excitation of the strictly forbidden (6s2)1S0 <--> (6s6p)3P0 clock transition in 174Yb atoms confined to a 1D optical lattice. A small (approximately 1.2 mT) staticExpand

Molecular fingerprinting with the resolved modes of a femtosecond laser frequency comb
The control of the broadband frequency comb emitted from a mode-locked femtosecond laser has permitted a wide range of scientific and technological advances—ranging from the counting of opticalExpand

ULTRASLOW GROUP VELOCITY AND ENHANCED NONLINEAR OPTICAL EFFECTS IN A COHERENTLY DRIVEN HOT ATOMIC GAS
We report the observation of small group velocities of order 90 meters per second, and large group delays of greater than 0.26 ms, in an optically dense hot rubidium gas (≈ 360 K). Media of this kindExpand

An Optical Clock Based on a Single Trapped 199Hg+ Ion
Microwave atomic clocks have been the de facto standards for precision time and frequency metrology over the past 50 years, finding widespread use in basic scientific studies, communications, andExpand

Accuracy evaluation of NIST-F1
The evaluation procedure of a new laser-cooled caesium fountain primary frequency standard developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is described. The new standard,Expand

Testing the stability of fundamental constants with the 199Hg+ single-ion optical clock.
Over a two-year duration, we have compared the frequency of the 199Hg+ 5d(10)6s (2)S(1/2)(F=0)<-->5d(9)6s(2) (2)D(5/2)(F=2) electric-quadrupole transition at 282 nm with the frequency of theExpand
