Caesium fountains are more accurate than "normal" atomic caesium clocks,
because in fountains the caesium atoms are cooled down with the aid of laser
beams and come ever slower - from a...

PTB researchers want to construct
the "atomic clock of the future" much more simply and more compactly
than the previous elaborate laboratory set-ups.
You imagine a clock to be...
