I was wondering about those limits, when i saw the plots.
Though, is it really the time/frequency source that defines
the detection limit?

I think going with a 2-4 5071s and a Cs or Rb fountain to keep them
on frequency would be the easier thing to do. For additional short
term performance, throw in an active H-maser.
