What the #%!* is Phase Noise?
Are fundamental constants really constant? Do the fundamental forces break down at certain distance scales? Why measure time to 18 decimal places? Precision measurement allows us to see where theory diverges from reality and where new and exciting effects take over from accepted behavior! This talk will discuss a few fundamental physics tests enabled by precision measurements and give an overview of a powerful precision measurement tool, the optical frequency comb.
