The Rubidium Clock

  • F. G. Major


Of the atomic clocks, or more appropriately, frequency/time standards, since their accuracy and sophistication, not to mention their cost, places them far above any other man-made keepers of time, the rubidium clock has the distinction of being the most compact, and therefore the most portable. Rugged versions of the rubidium standard have long been developed for shipboard use as well as for tactical military and missile-borne applications.
