At the request of a TN member (who wishes to remain anonymous)I started to reproduce:

The Quantum Physics of Atomic Frequency Standards Volume 1By Jacques Vanier  Division de Physique,Conseil National de Recherches, Ottawa and Claude Audoin  Laboratoire de I’Horloge Atomique, CentreNational de la Recherche Scientifique, Universite Paris Sud, Orsay. From aphotocopy he had.

I tried to do this as its used price will cost you yourfirst born child.

The original copyright was 1989.  The copyright has expired and the document isnow in the public domain

So I digitally reproduced and translated it into AmericanEnglish in March 2016.  Additionalliberty in editing was taken. Many paragraphs contained more than one subjectso using standard writing guidelines they were split up for an easierunderstanding of the concepts being presented. 

Many formulae had to be transferred images, and are veryclear, as re-typing would have delayed this project to infinity. Lastly, textwas transferred by OCR. Many drawings had to be edited using PhotoShop  Elements as the originals were smeared. 

I spent about 200 hours doing this.

Some formula symbols were not accurately reproduced.  I don’t have the math ability needed toretype most formulae. No material was added or deleted

I can send to all who wish it a DVD with the 800+ Mbytes ofraw data and the partial (5%) I have accomplished.

Due to permanent changes in my life I will never be able tospend time on this again. I just don’t want delete the material.
