Atomic clocks go nuclear

The quantum metrology research group is working towards a new type of atomic clock, that uses the atomic nucleus of Thorium-229 to realize the „ticking“. Going from electronic shell to nuclear transitions promises an increase in precision together with a more robust and compact implementation. More information can be found here

QME News: Sept. 2019 (1) - EC funds Innovative Training Network for quantum clocks

The European Commission has announced that it will support the new MoSaiQC Innovative Training Network for quantum clocks. The new network will be coordinated by prof. Florian Schreck at the University of Amsterdam, and consists of 10 partners from industry and academia, including TU Wien. The grant of 4.1 million euros will be used to hire 15 PhD students over a period of 4 years. Within this training network, TU Wien offers one full-time 3 years PhD position for highly-motivated and well-qualified student to work on the theoretical modelling of superradiant lasers. The work will be performed under supervision of Dr. Georgy A. Kazakov. Mehr
