Metrological features of the rubidium two-photon standards of the BNM-LPTF and Kastler Brossel Laboratories
We have built three optical frequency standards based on the two-photon transition of rubidium at 778 nm, and analysed their performance over a period of more than three years. We discuss some
Rubidium 87 D Line Data
In this reference we present many of the physical and optical properties of Rb that are relevant to various quantum optics experiments. In particular, we give parameters that are useful in treating
An ultra-stable optical frequency standard for telecommunication purposes based upon the 5S1/2 → 5D5/2 two-photon transition in rubidium
In this study, we report the development of a frequency standard for optical fiber communication applications based on a two-photon transition in rubidium at 385.2 THz. This standard kills two birds
Frequency ratio measurements at 18-digit accuracy using an optical clock network.

  • 2021
An advance in frequency ratio measurements lays the groundwork for future networks of mobile, airborne and remote optical clocks that will be used to test physical laws, perform relativistic geodesy and substantially improve international timekeeping.
Adiabatic potentials for Rydberg atoms in a ponderomotive optical lattice
We calculate the adiabatic potentials and adiabatic wavefunctions of Rydberg atoms in a one-dimensional ponderomotive optical lattice. All lattice- induced couplings between the degenerate
An introduction to Pound–Drever–Hall laser frequency stabilization
This paper is an introduction to an elegant and powerful technique in modern optics: Pound–Drever–Hall laser frequency stabilization. This introduction is primarily meant to be conceptual, but it
Electric-field-induced redistribution of radiation transition probabilities in atomic multiplet lines
Analytical dependences on a static electric field F0 are derived for the wavefunctions, matrix elements and probabilities of radiation transitions between multiplet substates interacting in field in
Central-field calculations of photoionisation cross sections of excited states of Rb and Sr+ and analysis of photoionisation cross sections of excited alkali atoms using quantum defect theory
Photoionisation cross sections for excited nl states (n<or=20, l<or=4) of Rb and Sr+ have been computed in the framework of a single-electron model by the use of a central potential. The evolution of
