The strontium lattice clocks are located at the national metrology institutes SYRTE and PTB in Paris and Braunschweig, respectively. The course and lay-out of the fibre link sections to Strasbourg (705 km from Paris, 710 km from Braunschweig) are indicated on the map. Additionally, the individual setups consisting of a clock laser, optical lattice, fs frequency comb, transfer laser and stabilized link are shown schematically. In Strasbourg, the frequency difference between the transfer lasers is measured. For details see the main text and Methods.

Here the uncertainty is the combined statis (dZstat 1g ¼ 4.9 " 10! 5) and systematic (dZ sys 1g ¼ 1.1 " 10 error—which was limited primarily by direction-independ phase shifts due to the quadratic Zeeman effect.

Here the increased statistical e is a result of fewer data available in 0 g. However, the system uncertainty improves by a factor of B5 compared w measurements in standard gravity. This is a direct result of reduced sensitivity of the DSD interferometer to direct independent systematic effects. Both measurements are consis with Z ¼ 0. Discussion Although the systematic uncertainty was dominated by techn issues related to time-varying magnetic fields, the sensitivit our measurements was primarily limited by two effects relate the motion of the aircraft—vibrational noise on the re reflection mirror and rotations of the interferometer bea Arnaud Landragin 4 pulse cold atom gyroscope New generation of gyroscope: with 4 pulses, 2T=800 ms « Pure Gyroscope » => increases the area, not sensitive to DC acceleration Extremely large area in 4 pulse sequence (area up to 11 cm2) = 1 2 (g ⇥ ke↵ ).⌦T3 π/2 Pulse π Pulse duration T/2 duration T I.
