MEMS researchers perfect fabrication of atomic clock

A Colorado-based government lab has moved forward in its quest to make a precise clock available to more industries. Researchers with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) reported last Friday that they have developed the core technology for a MEMS-based atomic clock. Using micro-fabrication techniques, the researchers have created a chip-sized clock, paving the way for its use in handheld devices and other previously impossible applications.
