Abstract

We have developed a microwave frequency standard based on the 15.2 GHz ground-stated hyperfine transition of 113Cd+ ions. Using a laser-cooled ion cloud trapped in a linear quadrupole Paul trap, the clock transition frequency is measured to be 15 199 862 855.0125(87) Hz, with an accuracy at the 10−13 level. The main errors are from the microwave frequency reference used in the experiment. The precision is improved by nearly two orders of magnitude than that reported before.
