Summary:
A new optical lattice clock, designed in France, is so precise its creators say it could help improve the resolution of global positioning systems (GPS), help Smartphones download data faster and refine high-frequency trading on financial markets. The research team at the Paris Observatory who devised it says it will neither gain nor lose a second over a period of 300 million years.
