Exhibition: At the femtosecond near!

2019-06-27 2020-12-31

International Clock Museum "Man and Time", La Chaux-de-Fonds

Immerse yourself in a world of extreme accuracy

A femtosecond, or 0.000000000000001 of a second, corresponds to the imprecision in the ticking of a modern atomic clock. This degree of accuracy is crucial to the organisation of human society: geolocation, navigation, transport and telecommunications systems can only perform so well thanks to the extreme accuracy of the clocks that govern them.
Children's guides are available for families visiting the exhibition.
