Iodine Optical Clock for G2G

Iodine Optical Clock for G2G

In the frame of the Call for Ideas “H2020-ESA-038 GNSS Evolutions Experimental Payloads and Science Activities”, the activity targets the design and the development of a high level architecture for an on-board clock solution based on a laser stabilised iodine vapour cell, down-converted to RF via a stabilised optical frequency comb. Within this activity, the most critical required items shall be indenfitied.

It is based on preliminary frequency stability results measured on an Elegant Breadboard.
