EFTS 2014 Program

Deadline for registration: was June 7, 2014

Lectures and Seminars

  • Introduction to TF - Basic concepts and vocabulary (quality, certification, traceability etc), and technical issues (oscillators, frequency standards, accuracy, stability, phase noise, jitter, physical environment, etc.).
  • Measurement methods and experimental techniques - Spectra (phase noise and L(f), amplitude noise), variances, frequency measurement and comparison.
  • Atomic clocks - Physics, traditional clocks (atomic beam, vapor cell, and maser), cold atoms, optical clocks, small-size clocks.
  • Oscillators - RF/microwave, cavity-stabilized lasers, optical frequency combs.
  • Timing and applications - Time scales, navigation, frequency transfer and synchronization.
  • Physics, applications, and trends.
