The Edge of Time: Frontier Measurements of Time and Frequency

Date: Thursday, 18 October 2018 19:00 - 21:00

Venue: Anglia Ruskin University (Mab 221)  |  City: Chelmsford, United Kingdom

Speaker: Dr Rhys Lewis (Head of Quantum Metrology Institute, National Physical Laboratory)

The accurate measurement of time has been a scientific and engineering challenge for centuries. Improvements in the ability to measure time have also been an engine for technological advancements from navigation at sea, through a synchronised railway network to modern-day GPS. The talk will review some of the history of time measurements but concentrate on the state-of-the-art methods being implemented at NPL and the prospects for new technologies based on these techniques.

Refreshments will be available before the talk from 18:30.
