Bilateral comparison on laser frequency calibration
A commercial frequency stabilized He-Ne laser (the artefact) will be calibrated in both institutes according to the procedures normally used. The primary standards (iodine stabilized lasers) of both institutes have been compared during international comparisons, whereas his project is intended to give confidence in the use of this standards for everyday calibration work. The analysis of the results will be discussed during a meeting in Vienna with the participants. The type of this collaboration will be an research cooperation, but this can be extended to an comparison if other institutes are interested.
Final Report 2007-02-02
It was planned to use a commercial frequency stabilized He-Ne laser (the artefact) for training in the calibration procedures normally used in the laboratories. Since the
objectives at INM have changed since the first proposal and no other institutes showed interest, the project will be declared as finished without any substantial work
have been performed.
