Work Experience

In 2006, I received M.S. in Optical Engineering, and got a job in National Time Service Center Chinese Academy of Sciences, which is a national-level base-type research institute in assuming the tasks of national standard time generating, keeping and transmitting


——Developed the miniature prototype of POP atomic clock

——Theoretically and Experimentally studied the Pulsed Optically Pumped (POP) Rb atomic clock, developed a POP prototype including laser system, microwave cavity and Rb cell etc

——Measured the Ramsey fringes of POP Rb atomic clock with FWHM of 65Hz and 150Hz in microwave and optical domain respectively; Realized the locking of the POP Rb atomic clock, with frequency stability of 4.5×10-13τ-1/2 (τ=1~100s)

——Study the cold and ultra-cold atomic physics, design miniature laser system and microwave cavity

——Studied the Autler-Townes splitting in EITElectromagnetically Induced Transparency induced by microwave field

——Studied the CPT maser and got CPT maser signal, adjusted the 461nm laser system for Sr optical clock and the ECDL diode laser for Cs fountain clock
