What is it about?



Optical clocks, a cornerstone in precision timekeeping, have traditionally been confined to laboratory settings due to their sensitivity and operational demands. However, recent advancements reported in the research article "Optical Clocks at Sea" have successfully transitioned these sophisticated devices onto naval platforms. These optical clocks not only enhance navigational accuracy but also pave the way for robust, decentralized global time synchronization systems.
