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...
