Penn State physics professor Kurt Kibble is a member of a super-elite team that builds and evaulates the accuracy of the world's best and most important clocks, reports Phys.org.
Gibble and Ruoxin Li, a former graduate student in Gibble’s lab, recently collaborated with the national time-keeping organizations of the United Kingdom, France and Germany to prove the accuracy of several of the best clocks in the world. Working with a team at the National Physical Laboratory near London, they established one of the U.K.’s clocks as the world’s most accurate. Gibble’s most recent work further improves the accuracy of a clock in Paris, which might allow it to reclaim this title.
