Now visitors to OnlineClock.net can set reminders with their favorite videos using a new Video Timer tool. (PRWEB) August 22, 2013 OnlineClock.net has just announced that they've added a Video Timer to their repertoire of online clocks and timing devices. The timer located at http://timer.onlineclock.net/video/ allows users to activate a video as an alarm. It is compatible with YouTube, and serves as a reliable audio and visual reminder for any of life’s daily events. It is likely...

New Stability Record Set By NIST Ytterbium Atomic Clocks
2013-08-22 14:45:09

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 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. The clocks act like 21st-century pendulums or metronomes that could swing back and forth with perfect timing for a period comparable to the age of the universe. NIST physicists report in the Aug. 22 issue of Science Express that the ytterbium clocks' tick is more stable than...

Researchers Discover Atomic Clock Can Simulate Quantum Magnetism
2013-08-09 11:33:49

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 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. Atomic clocks now join a growing list of physical systems that can be used for modeling and perhaps eventually explaining the quantum mechanical behavior of exotic materials such as high-temperature superconductors, which conduct electricity without resistance. All but the...

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. Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can now make the core of a miniature frequency comb in one minute. Conventional microfabrication techniques, by contrast, may require hours, days or even weeks. The NIST...

Redefining Time With Innovative Optical Lattice Clock
2013-07-10 12:56:58

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Atomic clocks are the standard in time, hailed as the most accurate and often used to keep other clocks on time. Now, a new kind of clock aims not only to replace atomic clocks as the most accurate, but to redefine the second as a measurement of time as well. The new device, called an optical lattice clock (OLC) is, theoretically, three times more accurate than current atomic clocks. In computer models, these clocks lost only one...

An astronomical clock is a clock with special mechanisms and dials to display astronomical information. This information can include everything from the relative position of the sun and the moon to major planets to zodiacal constellations. The term Astronomical clock is loosely used to refer to any clock that shows astronomical information. The clock could include the location of the sun and the moon, age and phase of the moon as well as other astronomical data. However, it should not be...
