Through preliminary measurement of the cold collision shift for 87Rb, the shift has been found to be more than a factor of 10 smaller than that of a laser-cooled Cs clock. Calculations for 85Rb clock have also been carried out. In the first Cs juggling experiment, the effects of collisions between juggled ball of atoms have been clarified.
