Instead, the ultra-fast oscillator could open new frontiers in ... ‘The optical atomic clock measures electronic transitions of particular species of atom,’ Lobo says, ‘At NPL we use strontium and ytterbium. ‘You can use the frequency of that ...
According to statistical measurements conducted on the new atomic clock ... The stability of the strontium clock is similar to that of the ytterbium atomic clock unveiled by NIST investigators back in August 2013. All atomic clocks
A pair of atomic clocks based on ytterbium atoms has set a new record for stability. The clocks are like 21 st-century pendulums that could swing back and forth with perfect timing for a period comparable to the age of the universe. The …
US scientists said Thursday they have built the world’s most precise clock, whose ticking rate varies less than two parts in one quintillion, or 10 times better than any other. The clock, made from the element ytterbium ... But the new
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have invented the world's most precise atomic clock, according to a recently-published study in Science. The new clock, referred to as a ytterbium optical lattice clock, …
The new clock can beat the cesium clock, a type of atomic clock that an international body of experts has used to define the unit of one second. It is about 9.19 billion oscillations. The oscillations per second in the ytterbium clock
Atomic clocks built at the official U.S. timekeeping laboratory tick with record-breaking regularity, scientists said — marking an advance that may someday allow researchers to perform new tests of ... the record-setting ytterbium
The new strontium clock is so precise it would neither gain ... each tick matches the duration of every other tick - is about the same as NIST's ytterbium atomic clock. Stability determines in part how long an atomic clock must run to …
You can expect more new breakthroughs in our clocks in the next five to 10 years." In terms of stability, the new clock equals the performance of NIST's world-leading ytterbium atomic clock.
