Making a denser optical lattice clock Some of today's most advanced clocks are made up of large numbers of atoms lined up in a one-dimensional (1D) optical lattice. The numbers improve clock stability, but atomic interactions can limit accuracy. Campbell et al. loaded their fermionic strontium atoms into a 3D optical lattice. The low temperatures and strong interactions ensured that the atoms avoided one another, resulting in a neat pattern where each lattice site was occupied by exactly one… Expand
Rabi spectroscopy of three-dimensional optical lattice clocks
A recent realization of three-dimensional optical lattice clocks circumvents short-range collisional clock shifts which have been the bottle neck towards higher precision; the long-range electronicExpand

TLDR
Clock spectroscopy of ultracold strontium atoms in a three-dimensional optical lattice is used to observe the onset of multi-body interactions that result from the underlying pairwise interactions between atoms, suggesting a universality in Ultracold collisions. Expand

Engineering Quantum States of Matter for Atomic Clocks in Shallow Optical Lattices.
TLDR
It is suggested that shallow, state-independent optical lattices with increased lattice constants can give rise to sufficiently small lattice photon scattering and motional dephasing rates as to enable coherence times on the order of the clock transition's natural lifetime. Expand

Suppression of Collisional Shifts in a Strongly Interacting Lattice Clock
TLDR
The effectiveness of this approach is demonstrated with a strontium lattice clock by reducing both the collisional frequency shift and its uncertainty to the level of 10−17, which eliminates the compromise between precision and accuracy in a many-particle system. Expand
A Quantum Many-Body Spin System in an Optical Lattice Clock
TLDR
A many-body Hamiltonian is derived that describes the experimental observation of atomic spin coherence decay, density-dependent frequency shifts, severely distorted lineshapes, and correlated spin noise that opens the door to further explorations of quantum many- body effects and entanglement through use of highly coherent and precisely controlled optical lattice clocks.

An optical lattice clock

This work reports a different approach, in which atoms trapped in an optical lattice serve as quantum references, and the ‘optical lattice clock’ demonstrates a linewidth one order of magnitude narrower than that observed for neutral-atom optical clocks, and its stability is better than that of single-ion clocks.
