Synchronizing optical clocks to one quadrillionth of a second

An international team of researchers, led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, has advanced their work with synchronizing a remote optical clock with a master clock by exploring what happens to time signals that need to travel through 12 kilometers (km) of turbulent air, which is known to distort optical signals.
