Cryogenic sapphire microwave oscillators for space, metrology and scientific applications

Abstract

We recently demonstrated a Cryogenic Sapphire Oscillator (CSO) presenting a short term frequency stability better than 3×10-15 for 1s≤τ<1000s and achieving 4.5×10-15 for one day integration. This CSO incorporates a pulse-tube cooler instead of a bath cryostat-thus eliminating the need for regular supplies and manual transferring of liquid helium. The advent of reliable and cryocooled CSO open the possibility to implement such an ultra-stable reference not only in metrological laboratories with liquid helium facilities but also in remote sites like base stations for space navigation, VBLI antenna sites, ...
