Latest Atomic clock Stories
The U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has officially launched a new atomic clock, called NIST-F2, to serve as a new U.S. civilian time and frequency standard, along with the current NIST-F1 standard.
-- New Option for MS2720T Provides Excellent Frequency Accuracy Without Need for GPS in Regulatory Compliance Applications -- MORGAN HILL, Calif., Feb.
Heralding a new age of terrific timekeeping, a research group led by a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) physicist has unveiled an experimental strontium atomic clock that has set new world records for both precision and stability-- key metrics for the performance of a clock.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a compact atomic clock design that relies on cold rubidium atoms instead of the usual hot atoms, a switch that promises improved precision and stability.
Researchers from Garching and Braunschweig transport frequencies with high precision over almost 2000 km - important, among other things, for geodesy
Science Community now has entire system available to help drive applications into BEC and Ultracold Atoms. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 05, 2013 Notoriously
A pair of experimental atomic clocks based on ytterbium atoms at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has set a new record for stability.
Researchers at JILA have for the first time used an atomic clock as a quantum simulator, mimicking the behavior of a different, more complex quantum system.
Laser frequency combs-high-precision tools for measuring different colors of light in an ever-growing range of applications such as advanced atomic clocks, medical diagnostics and astronomy-are not only getting smaller but also much easier to make.
Atomic clocks are the standard in time, hailed as the most accurate and often used to keep other clocks in time. Now, a new kind of clock aims to not only replace atomic clocks as the most accurate, but redefine the second as a measurement of time as well.
