Atomic clocks and precision measurements

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

We present a review of our clock science conducted under the NASA Microgravity Fundamental Physics program. Our work has led to the development of rubidium atomic clocks, designs for ground- and space-based clocks that juggle atoms to achieve ultrahigh stability and accuracy, improved microwave cavities for atomic clocks, and elucidation of new systematic errors such as the atomic recoil from microwave photons. High stability clocks can be used for precise tests of fundamental physics and accurate deep-space navigation.
