Abstract We perform high-resolution spectroscopy on Lu including the and clock transitions. Hyperfine structures and optical frequencies relative to the ground state of four low-lying excited states are given to a few tens of kHz resolution. This covers the most relevant transitions involved in clock operation with this isotope. Additionally, measurements of the hyperfine structure may provide access to higher order nuclear moments, specifically the magnetic octupole and electric hexadecapole… 

Spectroscopy of the S01−D21 clock transition in Lu+176

High precision spectroscopy of the $^1S_0$-to-${^1}D_2$ clock transition of $^{176}$Lu is reported. Measurements are performed with Hertz level precision with the accuracy of the hyperfine-averaged

Hyperfine-mediated effects in a Lu+ optical clock

We consider hyperfine-mediated effects for clock transitions in $^{176}$Lu$^+$. Mixing of fine structure levels due to the hyperfine interaction bring about modifications to Lande $g$-factors and the

Blackbody radiation shift assessment for a lutetium ion clock

The authors measure the static differential scalar polarizability of Lutetium ion resonant transitions and its lower light shift from blackbody radiation makes it a promising candidate for ion-based atomic clocks.

Dynamic polarizability measurements with Lu+176

We measure the differential polarizability of the $^{176}$Lu$^+$ $^1S_0$ -to- ${^3}D_1$ clock transition at multiple wavelengths. This experimentally characterizes the differential dynamic

Developing a field independent frequency reference

We show that by averaging over transitions to multiple hyperfine levels, quadrupole shifts and dominant Zeeman effects exactly cancel whenever the nuclear spin, I, is at least as large as the total

Suppression of Clock Shifts at Magnetic-Field-Insensitive Transitions.

It is shown that it is possible to significantly reduce rank 2 tensor shifts of a clock transition by operating at a judiciously chosen magnetic-field-insensitive point, significantly improving the feasibility of a recent proposal for clock operation with large ion crystals.
