Abstract : Results of calculation and measurements on the light shift and buffer gas shift in passive rubidium frequency standards are reported. The light shift was measured for two configurations: the separated filter and the integrated filter approaches. A phenomenological analysis, which describes well the results obtained, is presented. Measurements of the frequency shifts created by various buffer gases-pure or mixture- are reported. A nonlinear dependence of frequency versus temperature is observed. The results are compared to already published data and a simple analysis using an equation quadratic in temperature is used to explain those results. (Author)
