Atomic clocks: counting seconds with atoms
Nearly every appliance and gadget that we possess has some form of timekeeping. I can tell you the time by looking at my phone, watch, or microwave display. But how good are each of these clocks, and what actually makes a good clock? This talk will addresses all of these questions, and teach you how to build a clock accurate to a second over the age of the universe.
