Abstract

At the National Research Council Canada, we are performing final assembly and initial testing of our new atomic fountain clock, NRC-FCs2. This fountain clock incorporates several improvements in the optical, microwave, and computer systems from our previous generation clock, NRC-FCs1, as well as a new physics package designed at the National Physical Laboratory (UK). With these changes, NRC-FCs2 is expected to reach uncertainties < 5×10-16. We will discuss the recent improvements made in the various subsystems of NRC-FCs2 and present preliminary results in its evaluation.
