Global Atomic Clock Market: Market Driver and Restraint
Applications of Atomic Clock are anticipated to create new business segments in the market. Atomic Clock is in use for a broad range of Space & Military/Aerospace, Scientific & Metrology Research, Telecom/Broadcasting and Others.
Atomic clock is a clock device that uses an electron transition frequency in the microwave, optical, or ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum of atoms as a frequency standard for its timekeeping element.
This report studies the Rubidium Atomic Clock market, rubidium atomic clock or rubidium standard, is a high accuracy frequency and time standard. Rubidium atomic clocks, the simplest and most compact of other atomic clocks, use a glass cell of rubidium gas that changes its absorption of light at the optical rubidium frequency when the surrounding microwave frequency is just right. Atomic Clock is a precision clock that depends for its operation on an electrical oscillator regulated by the natural vibration frequencies of an atomic system (as a beam of cesium atoms).
Cesium beam atomic clock (Cs beam) is a device that uses as a reference the exact frequency of the microwave spectral line emitted by atoms of the metallic element cesium, in particular its isotope of atomic weight 133 ("Cs-133").
Hydrogen Maser Atomic Clocks are the most precise clocks in the world, offering the highest short-term stability: time remains stable up to 100 times better than a Rubidium clock.
Global Atomic Clock Market: Key Takeaways
· Today, though there are different types of atomic clocks, the principle behind all of them remains the same. The major difference is associated with the element used and the means of detecting when the energy level changes. The various types of atomic clocks include:
Cesium atomic clocks employ a beam of cesium atoms. The clock separates cesium atoms of different energy levels by magnetic field.
Hydrogen atomic clocks maintain hydrogen atoms at the required energy level in a container with walls of a special material so that the atoms don't lose their higher energy state too quickly.
Rubidium atomic clocks, the simplest and most compact of all, use a glass cell of rubidium gas that changes its absorption of light at the optical rubidium frequency when the surrounding microwave frequency is just right.
The most accurate atomic clocks available today use the cesium atom and the normal magnetic fields and detectors. In addition, the cesium atoms are stopped from zipping back and forth by laser beams, reducing small changes in frequency due to the Doppler effect.
· Oscilloquartz is developing an optically pumped cesium beam clock to meet the needs of metrology, defense, space and telecom applications. They are currently under test and preliminary performance results have achieved a tenfold stability improvement over current magnetic deflection atomic clocks.
