interdisciplinary group of investigators at the Research Laboratory
of Electronics at MIT have joined with collaborators from industry
and government laboratories to develop a set of key technologies
for advanced optical metrology and ultraprecise optical clocks.
This project, sponsored by the MURI program of the Department
of Defense, seeks to seize the current opportunity to greatly
increase the precision of time and frequency standards that
arises from recent advances in ultrashort-pulse modelocked lasers
and in ultracold atom and ion physics.
