How to count time: Curtis Menyuk addresses age-old problem

Optics and frequency combs for more accurate time keeping

UMBC Magazine has an article on CSEE Professor Curtis Menyuk and his seminal work on using optics and frequency combs to develop more accurate time-keeping technology. This has led to the recent establishment of the Center for Navigation, Timing, and Frequency Research (CENTAUR) at UMBC with support from the Army Research Laboratory. Its research on optical clocks can improve the accuracy of the current satellite-based Global Positioning System and provide alternatives in case of its failure.
