Dark line resonances, narrowed with a buffer gas to less than 100 Hz width, are observed in a Cs vapor cell using a directly modulated vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL). An external oscillator locked to one of these resonances exhibits a short-term stability of σy(τ)=9.3×10-12/√τ, which drops to 1.6×10-12 at 100 s. A physics package for a frequency-reference based on this design could be compact, low-power, and simple to implement
