We have realized and studied a rubidium atomic frequency standard based on a paraffin-coated cell, exhibiting a short-term frequency stability −12 τ−1/2 between τ = 1 and 100 s. Characterization of the wall-coating is performed by measuring the T1and T2 relaxation times. Perturbations of the medium- to...
