Abstract

A frequency chain, derived from the one used to measure the absolute frequency (ν = 473 THz) of the He-Ne/I2 optical standard, is currently being implemented in order to measure the frequency of a diode laser stabilized on the two-photon transition of rubidium vapor. The measurement scheme is based on the comparison of the frequency of this near-IR potential secondary standard to the 13th harmonic frequency of the R(12)-CO2/OsO4 LPTF secondary standard at ν = 29.096 THz. Recent results on the frequency synthesis are reported, enabling the testing of long-term stability of this Rb-locked system with respect to the IR reference standard.
