A theoretical study is carried out within the framework of density matrix formalism of the error signal slope for frequency standards based on the resonance of saturated absorption excited in the field of two counterwaves. Two schemes of error-signal formation are considered: in the first case, the frequency of only the test field is modulated, and, in the second case, the frequency modulation of both waves is carried out. On the basis of the calculations, the optimal parameters of harmonic modulation are determined, at which the slope has the maximum value.
