Neglected atom has top properties for atomic clocks

 

Like watchmakers choosing superior materials to build a fine timepiece, CQT physicists have singled out an atom that could allow us to build better atomic clocks. The team report on the potential of the element lutetium in Nature Communications. “The ultimate performance of a clock comes down to the properties of the atom – how insensitive the atom is to its environment. I would call lutetium top in its class,” says CQT Principal Investigator Murray Barrett.
