Precision Measurements with Ultracold Atoms – University of Copenhagen

The group works with experimental setups in the laboratory, where the atoms are trapped in a magnetic field, where they are held by precise beams of laser light and are cooled down to near absolute zero, minus 273 degrees Celsius. The result is an atomic clock, a technology that is now so precise that it only loses one over the entire 13.8 billion year lifetime of the universe.
