Abstract

Preliminary results on the stabilization of a 1772-MHz oscillator to a resonance Raman transition in an atomic beam of sodium are presented. Short-term stability of 5.6 × 10−11 (τ = 100 sec) for a 15-cm Ramsey interaction-region separation has been achieved. Sources of frequency drift are briefly discussed.
