Optical lattice clocks based on elements with two valence electrons are strong competitors in the quest for next generation time and frequency standard. While promising results have already been obtained on several stationary setups using Sr and Yb, transportable clocks are desirable for both performance evaluation and applications.
In the framework of the Space Optical Clocks 2 project, we are developing a transportable Yb lattice clock demonstrator. Our setup is based on diode and fiber lasers and features an intra-vacuum enhancement resonator to allow the formation of a large volume lattice using moderate laser power.
Here we present our recent results of the spectroscopy of the 1S0 → 3P0 transition in 171Yb confined in an one dimensional optical lattice, a first evaluation of systematics and ongoing work towards competitive clock operation as well as more compact and robust subsystems.
