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...
