Abstract : During the third (and final) year of the "Indium Mono-Ion Oscillator" grant, our goal of loading and observing a single indium ion was realized. In order to achieve this result, we relied on the development work of previous years; the "background suppression system" developed earlier was found to be particularly useful. We also began the design and construction of the all-solid-state "clock laser" system. Our intent is to replace all of the bulky argon and dye lasers with solid state systems; this will allow considerable reduction in the size and power consumption of the resulting optical frequency standard. jg p.2
