Submission + - NIST Ytterbium Atomic Clocks Set Record for Stability->

bryanandaimee writes: An optical lattice clock like the one discussed earlier on slashdot has broken the stability record. Comparing two OLC's using trapped atoms of Ytterbium, the stability of the clocks was measured to 2 parts per quintillion (10^18). While the previously reported OLC used strontium, these clocks, built by another group, use Ytterbium. Interestingly, while the stability of the clocks is now the best in the world, the accuracy has yet to be measured.

The moon is a planet just like the Earth, only it is even deader.
