An assessment of possible reduction of the limit frequency instability of a hydrogen generator is conducted when using a system of double sorting of hydrogen atoms by energy states. It is shown that when receiving a hydrogen atom beam in one quantum state, reduction of the frequency instability by approximately a factor of 1.6 to the value 1.8510–14 τ–1/2 is possible.
