Saturday, February 5, 2011
12:00 AM
Dennison Building, Rooms 170 & 182

Speaker: Aaron Leanhardt (U-M Physics)

Every day we use clocks to tell us when we have arrived somewhere, but high-precision clocks are also used to tell us where that place is. This talk will summarize the evolution of clocks and more broadly describe the art of high-precision measurements.
