Scientists Evaluate Atomic Clock based on ytterbium atoms.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
August 14, 2009 As reported in Physical Review Letters, an experimental atomic clock based on ytterbium atoms is now about four times more accurate than it was several years ago. Its precision compares to that of NIST-F1 cesium fountain clock, the nation's civilian time standard, which keeps time to within 1 second in about 100 million years. Also, the ytterbium clock provides time standards community more options in ongoing development and comparisons of next-generation clocks.
NIST Demonstrates sustained quantum computation processing.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
