It’s About Time for A Quantum Leap in Timing

Mar 12, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Time orders the events of our daily lives. What time is my next meeting? How many minutes do I have to catch my flight? What time does the game start? We measure events’ times in hours, minutes, and seconds. What you might not realize, though, is that many technologies we rely on utilize vastly more precise time measurements than what comes to mind. During this panel, you will learn how the ability to accurately keep time to the billionth of a second will transform such fields as finance, communication, and national security.
