The Most Accurate Atomic Clock

The Most Accurate Atomic Clock

MIT researchers have succeeded in developing the most accurate atomic clock ever. The research may support scientists to find answers to questions such as the effect of gravity on time.

Atomic clocks are the most sensitive clocks in the world. Scientists say that if the best atomic clocks in the world had been operating since the beginning of the universe; they would have been off for only half a second until now. Still, researchers and scientists are working on more precise ones to be able to measure vibrations; more accurately and better detect phenomena such as dark matter or gravitational waves.

According to newly published reports, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have succeeded in developing the most accurate atomic clock yet, . This achievement will also be of great help in research, such as the effect of gravity on time by scientists, or whether time will change as the universe ages.

Used a different method than existing atomic clocks

An atomic clock model

MIT researchers shared their findings in an article on Nature. As seen in the article, the researchers used a different method than the existing atomic clocks to make the different atomic clock; which they said is the most accurate atomic clock in the world. The reason for this is, as can be expected, to obtain much more accurate results.
