Frequency shifts of colliding fermions in optical lattice clocks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We discuss the novel frequency shift due to inhomogeneous excitations, particularly in the context of optical frequency lattice clocks. We analyze in detail the frequency shifts due to scattering-induced tunneling. These shifts have terms that are linear and non-linear in the atomic density. We show that they are small at moderate to high lattice depths.
