How much do atomic clocks cost?
Conventional vapor cell atomic clocks are about the size of a deck of cards, consume about 10 W of electrical power and cost about $3,000.
Can you buy an actual atomic clock?
If you have a spare $1500 burning a hole in your pocket, perhaps you’d like to spend it on an ultra-precise, ultra-small atomic clock, now available for purchase from Symmetricom Inc. Draper Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories.
Are atomic clocks worth it?
Are Atomic Clocks Radioactive? Atomic clocks keep time better than any other clock. They even keep time better than the rotation of the Earth and the movement of the stars.
What time does the atomic clock say it is?
What is the most accurate atomic clock?
Today, the most precise clocks are based on a natural atomic resonance of the cesium atom—the atomic equivalent of a pendulum. For example, NIST-F1, one of the world’s most accurate time standards based on microwave atomic clocks, neither gains nor loses a second in 20 million years.
What is the largest clock in the world?
