Atomic clock

The atomic clock for more exact measurement of time

Today the mankind applies the atomic clock to counting of seconds; however the French scientists developed the alternative nuclear mechanism which promises more exact measurements of time. Optical mesh hours have a course error in only 1 second for 300 million years. As well as usual watches which rely on a pendulum for measurement of intervals of time, a new watch apply nuclear vibrations. In the majority of a modern atomic clock it is a question of fluctuations of atoms of cesium which throw out special microwaves with accurately set intervals. The new system of the atomic clock uses very short beams of light bringing into the raised condition atoms of strontium. By the words of Professor Jerome Lodewyck from the Parisian observatory in their watches are applied laser beams. These beams oscillate much quicker than microwave radiation; therefore they can divide them into smaller intervals to measure time more precisely.

Atomic Clocks is Available in the Market

The smallest  atomic clocks became  commercially  available,  their price ranges from $1500. As the size of a matchbook, the new clock is 100 times  smaller than its predecessor.It would be interesting to note that the tiny atomic clocks were developed by a team of researchers  from Symmetricom Inc. Draper Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories. Called Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC), the device consumes only 100 mW.
