How to compare atomic clocks

We are quite sure that atomic clocks also play a role in your everyday life - even if you may not realize it. But did you know how scientists make sure that all atomic clocks in our part of the solar system tick in the same way? And what is it about optical clocks and nuclear clocks?

In our detailed article, we tell you about the role of TDCs in the synchronization of atomic clocks and about the possibilities of the extraordinary accuracy of atomic clocks.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Stefan Weyers, Head of the "Unit of Time" working group @ PTB for his extraordinary support.
