An IOP / CSES lecture for the public, presented by Dr Rhys Lewis, NPL.

Thursday 18 October 2018, starting at 7pm

Refreshments available before the talk from 6.30pm

The accurate measurement of time has been a scientific and engineering challenge for centuries. Improvements in the ability to measure time have also been an engine for technological advancements from navigation at sea, through a synchronised railway network to modern-day GPS. The talk will review some of the history of time measurements but concentrate on the state-of-the-art methods being implemented at NPL and the prospects for new technologies based on these techniques.

Dr Rhys Lewis is Head of the Quantum Metrology Institute at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL)

Attendance is free and open to all – reservation preferred but not essential.
