While mechanical clocks use the movement of a pendulum to keep time, atomic clocks use an electromagnetic signal of ... to obtain its best performance. But the new ytterbium clocks can achieve that same result in about one second of …
Atomic clocks are set to become even more precise than they currently are. A new technique can ensure that the "ticking ... In the current study, Ludlow and his colleagues cooled 10,000 ytterbium atoms to 10 Microkelvin, just a hair's …
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 need to …
Indeed, the most accurate clock in the world, which is run by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Colorado, is a ytterbium atomic clock ... basis for an ultra-precise atomic clock in the future. In a new paper published …
The more stable the clock, the better its measurement power. The new ytterbium lattice 'double clock' is the most …
This is not the first time a cesium-alternative atomic clock has made headlines for record-breaking feats. In August 2013 the NIST reported a pair of Ytterbium atomic clocks set records for being the most stable time-keeping devices ever. …
Every single GPS satellite is home to a family of atomic ... comes lots of new opportunities for discovery and applications. Here at the University of Western Australia our research group is building an optical lattice clock based on ytterbium …
The clock, which uses atoms of the rare earth element ytterbium, is being built by researchers led ... and the only southern hemisphere based clock in the international Atomic Clock Ensemble in Space (ACES) project. ACES is scheduled to …
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 ytterbium …
they introduced another atomic clock based on the element ytterbium that performs similarly to the strontium clock. “Exquisitely precise timing is built into every aspect of modern infrastructure,” NIST official Thomas O’Brian told the …
