Japanese scientists have produced high-precision atomic clock capable of accurately show the time for 16 billion. Years. Accuracy progress over the period of just one second, according Galnet citing TASS.
   At the heart of the new device, which is engaged in the development team from the University of Tokyo, led by Professor Katori Hidetosi, is the matrix of strontium atoms cooled enclosed in an optical lattice composed of laser beams. Temperature strontium atoms is minus 180 degrees Celsius and size measurement of time intervals is the frequency of light absorbed by the particles of the chemical element. New technologies have allowed to achieve incredible accuracy and exceed this indicator is being applied "reference" atomic clock over 1 thousand times.
