|Abstract||[Problem] To provide a gas-cell-type atomic oscillator that ensures high frequency stability over a long period of time. [Solution] The present invention provides an atomic oscillator that comprises: a first frequency synthesizer that synthesizes a first high-frequency signal by multiplying a reference frequency signal, which is produced by oscillation of a first piezoelectric control oscillator, by a first multiplication factor; a first semiconductor laser that emits first laser light that is modulated using the first high-frequency signal; a second frequency synthesizer that synthesizes a second high-frequency signal by multiplying an output signal, which is produced by oscillation of a second piezoelectric control oscillator, by a second multiplication factor; a second semiconductor laser that emits second laser light that is modulated using the second high-frequency signal; a gas cell on which the first laser light and the second laser light are simultaneously incident, and that encloses a first alkali metal atom gas, a second alkali metal atom gas, and a buffer gas; and a computer that sets the first multiplication factor in the first frequency synthesizer.|
