New Strontium Atomic Clock Becomes Most Accurate Ever

New Strontium Atomic Clock Becomes Most Accurate Ever

Atomic clocks have long been the most accurate timing devices known to man. Moreover, optical lattice atomic clocks have been developed over the last few years that offer absolutely mind-boggling stability and accuracy.

On Wednesday, April 22nd researchers announced they have developed a record-setting strontium atomic clock that is so stable that it could operate for 15 billion years without losing a second. The new atomic clock is much more accurate than our current master clock.

The amazingly accurate clock was built by scientists at an institute of the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Colorado Boulder. More details on the innovative atomic clock can be found in a paper published earlier this week in Nature Communications.
