Integrated Quantum Clock

Project description

A closer look at next-generation optical clocks

An optical clock keeps time using light on resonance with an optical atomic transition. It is the most accurate type of clock, 100x more precise than traditional microwave atomic clocks. Bringing these clocks from the laboratory into a robust and compact form will have a significant impact on numerous fields like telecommunication, geology and astronomy. In this context, the EU-funded iqClock project will bring together leading experts from academia, strong industry partners and relevant end-users to launch a clock development pipeline. The consortium will serve as a nucleus for a European optical clock ecosystem. The first product prototype will be a field-ready strontium optical clock. It will be based on a modular concept, already with the next-generation clocks in mind.
