Researchers Prof ME Tobar
Brief description Devices for precise frequency and time metrology invented at the University of Western Australia have application in telecommunications, advanced radar, optical to microwave links, frequency and time standards, astronomy, tests of fundamental physics and have attracted worldwide interest. This project will strengthen Australian "know how" and expertise, and place us in a position to participate in current and future space missions. Moreover, this represents an opportunity for high profile involvement as the only southern hemisphere user of the most accurate space clock ever developed, which will likely involve the order of 30 institutes worldwide. This work necessarily includes collaboration with the world's elite metrological institutes.
