NTSC Scientists Realize Intracity Optical-fiber Two-way Quantum Clock Synchronization

Precise synchronization between distant clocks plays essential role in almost all types of precision measurements. In comparison with the traditional methods based on satellites, fiber optics has shown to be an advantageous channel for precise time and frequency transfer. Further cooperating with quantum technology, the fiber-optic quantum clock synchronization has shown great potential in enhancing the precision and providing better guarantee of security. To further prove its advantage in practical applications, a research team from National Time Service Center the Chinese Academy of Sciences implemented two tests of synchronization performance between clocks apart on two types of optical fiber distances (7 km intracity fiber link and 50 km laboratory fiber link).

Researchers Realizes Satellite-ground Precise Time Synchronization Accuracy Better than 0.5 Picoseconds

Currently for the accuracy of long-range time transfer can only reach up to 100 ps, limiting the wide application of high-precision time-frequency reference in space science. The study of the satellite-ground precise time synchronization method can provide an effective solution for developing long-range time transmission technology.
