QN Metrologia quantistica e nanotecnologie
Project duration:
01-06-2018 - 31-05-2022
EMPIR (European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research)

Optical clocks require more stable optical oscillators to accelerate the redefinition of the SI second, bring excellent fundamental science to metrology and enable applications for innovative sensors in clock-based geodesy. The overall objective of this project is to realise a new generation of ultra-stable optical oscillators which take advantage of quantum technologies.

This project will implement and further develop state-of-the-art quantum measurement strategies on optical clocks of metrological relevance.
