Abstract: The enclosed data set provides additional data on the measurements presented in the publication entitled "Optical frequency ratio of a 171Yb+ single-ion clock and a 87Sr lattice clock" in Metrologia (DOI: 10.1088/1681-7575/abc86f).
Other: EMPIR projects are co-funded by the European Union’s (EU) Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR participating states.
Remark: This dataset contains the frequency data used to compute the Allan deviation of the strontium clock, shown in Figure 1 as green squares.

# Description of the individual files:
1. ``frequency_ratios.csv`` (text/csv):

The file contains a summary of the Yb+/Sr frequency ratio measurements, which are shown Figure 3 of the publication and from which the distribution shown in Figure 4 is derived.

The column layout is as follows:
1. center-of-gravity date/time as Modified Julian Date (MJD)
2. start date/time as MJD (where exported during data analysis)
3. end date/time as MJD (where exported during data analysis)
4. measured frequency ratio, in units of 1E-18 and with the specified offset subtracted
5. statistical uncertainty, in units of 1E-18
6. total measurement uncertainty, in units of 1E-18

2. ``instability_fc.csv`` (text/csv):

The file contains the fractional frequency data used to compute the Allan deviation of the frequency comb comparison, shown in Figure 1 as purple triangles.

The column layout is as follows:
1. time index as MJD
2. fractional frequency difference between combs

3. ``instability_yb_sr_2015.csv`` (text/csv)

The file contains the fractional frequency data used to compute the Allan deviation of the frequency ratio measurements *without* stability transfer from the Si-2 ultrastable laser, shown in Figure 1 as red circles.

The column layout is as follows:
1. time index as number of seconds elapsed since the specified reference date/time
2. frequency ratio of the clocks with the specified offset subtracted

Note that this trace does not necessarily correspond exactly to any measurement listed in ``frequency_ratios.csv``, because
(a) such traces may be segmented differently for instability analysis than for analysis of the frequency ratio (e.g., by using the longest possible data sets) and
(b) they do not necessarily include all systematic corrections (e.g., due to global corrections applied in subsequent post-processing).

3. ``instability_yb_sr_2017.csv`` (text/csv)

The file contains the fractional frequency data used to compute the Allan deviation of the frequency ratio measurements *with* stability transfer from the Si-2 ultrastable laser, shown in Figure 1 as blue diamonds.

The column layout is as follows:
1. time index as number of seconds elapsed since the specified reference date/time
2. frequency ratio of the clocks with the specified offset subtracted

Note that this trace does not necessarily correspond exactly to any measurement listed in ``frequency_ratios.csv``, because
(a) such traces may be segmented differently for instability analysis than for analysis of the frequency ratio (e.g., by using the longest possible data sets) and
(b) they do not necessarily include all systematic corrections (e.g., due to global corrections applied in subsequent post-processing).
