Abstract

We demonstrate a new atomic state detection scheme that directly measures the population difference of the two clock states using FM absorption spectroscopy. We also demonstrate a juggling Rb fountain clock that we will use to study collisions of juggled balls of atoms. Juggling can significantly improve the clocks short-term stability without requiring greater signal-to-noise or a larger cold collision frequency shift.
