Super-accurate atomic clocks
DARPA's Program in Ultrafast Laser Science and Engineering (PULSE) is using pulsed laser technology to improve atomic clocks and microwave sources, including their size and precision. For example, PULSE enables more accurate time and frequency synchronization over long distances. According to DARPA, PULSE technology is necessary for super-accurate atomic clocks, such as the world's most accurate optical atomic clocks.
