The Fe3+:Sapphire Whispering Gallery Modes Maser Oscillator

Abstract : This paper reports on the comparison of a Cryocooled Sapphire Oscillator with our Cryocooled Maser Oscillator made possible due to a home-made synthesis chain. The maser oscillator demonstrates for the first time a fractional frequency deviation below 6x1010-15 over 4 s sampling time which is comparable to the conventional Cryogenic sapphire Oscillator, but achieved in a free running configuration.
