AOSense will build and test an integrated ultrastable laser module capable of reaching a short-term instability of < 5e-15 @ 1s. The flexible design will allow the module to be adapted for several relevant optical clock wavelengths which utilize external cavity diode lasers. The first unit will operate at 698 nm to address the Sr clock transition.
