  • INRIM maintains the ytterbium optical frequency standard "IT-Yb1" whose transition is recommended as a secondary representation of the second of the International System and is one of the possible candidates for a future redefinition of the time unit. IT-Yb1 participates in international fibre optic comparisons and the generation of the TAI (International Atomic Time) time scale. The work related to this call is experimental in nature and includes the metrological characterization of uncertainty and stability of IT- Yb1, the improvement of the standard and its reliability, the management of the experiment for the regular contribution of data to the BIPM for the generation of TAI. In addition, frequency comparisons are planned, both local and remote with fibre optic links. In addition, a new optical cavity is being acquired which aims to improve the clock laser. An experimental experience in the field of optical frequency metrology or atomic physics is preferable.
