Add to Cal
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 02/05/2011
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: Dennison Building, Rooms 170 & 182

  • Description:

    Every day we use clocks to tell us when we have arrived somewhere, but high-precision clocks are also used to tell us where that place is. This talk will summarize the evolution of clocks and more broadly describe the art of high-precision measurements.
