Abstract

A GaAlAs laser diode has been locked to the D2 transition of Cs atoms in an atomic beam. Measured frequency stabilities are 1 × 10−10 (0.1 sec), 8.4 × 10−12 (1 sec), 2.2 × 10−12 (10 sec), and 7.8 × 10−13 (100 sec). This system has been successfully applied to an optically pumped Cs-beam frequency standard.
