We present progress towards a primary frequency standard with substantial reduction in size, weight, and power over the state of the art. Our clock is based on the microwave hyperfine transition in rubidium 87. Unique to this effort, our focus is on special design considerations and engineering trades to realize a primary frequency standard in an ultimate 5 cc form factor, with 50 mW power consumption, and which is compatible with a robust, high-volume manufacturing process. In our approach… CONTINUE READING
