It’s About Time for A Quantum Leap in Timing


Time orders the events of our daily lives. What time is my next meeting? How many minutes do I have to catch my flight? What time does the game start? We measure events’ times in hours, minutes, and seconds. What you might not realize, though, is that many technologies we rely on utilize vastly more precise time measurements than what comes to mind. During this panel, you will learn how the ability to accurately keep time to the billionth of a second will transform such fields as finance, communication, and national security.

  1. Understand why precision timekeeping is the backbone of emerging technologies.
  2. Realize the benefits of quantum technology are here today and hold even more promise for tomorrow.
  3. Learn about current quantum applications today such as quantum atomic clocks.
