JILA's superradiant laser may one day boost atomic clocks

(National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)) JILA physicists have demonstrated a novel laser design based on synchronizedemissions of light from the same type of atoms used in advanced atomic clocks. The laser could be stableenough to improve atomic clock performance a hundredfold and even serve as a clock itself, whilealso advancing other scientific quests such as making accurate 'rulers' for measuring astronomicaldistances.
