We report an uncertainty evaluation of an optical lattice clock based on the (1)S(0) <-> (3)P(0), transition in the bosonic isotope (174)Yb by use of magnetically induced spectroscopy. The absolute frequency of the (1)S(0) <-> (3)P(0) transition has been determined through comparisons with optical and microwave standards at NIST.

Abstract

We report an uncertainty evaluation of an optical lattice clock based on the (1)S(0) <-> (3)P(0), transition in the bosonic isotope (174)Yb by use of magnetically induced spectroscopy. The absolute frequency of the (1)S(0) <-> (3)P(0) transition has been determined through comparisons with optical and microwave standards at NIST. The weighted mean of the evaluations is nu((174)Yb)=518 294 025 309 217.8(0.9) Hz. The uncertainty due to systematic effects has been reduced to less than 0.8 Hz, which represents 1.5 X 10(-15) in fractional frequency.
