While atomic clocks are recognized as extremely precise time-keeping devices, they have been limited in size and reliability due to their traditional gas lamp. By replacing the gas lamp with a laser, manufacturers such as Symmetricom can significantly improve the reliability and power consumption of atomic clocks and also begin targeting applications that require smaller devices.
The Oclaro single mode VCSELs enable advances in physics miniaturization, which result in reduced size and power consumption while providing stable reference frequencies that are immune to standard environmental perturbation These lasers power Symmetricom’s SA.3Xm rubidium atomic frequency reference, a miniature atomic oscillator component used by network equipment manufacturers to ensure reliable wireless infrastructure.
