Time Crystals: Improving Oscillators and Clocks

A paper published in the July/August 2022 Optics and Photonic News focuses on the latest developments in Time Crystals and highlights the demonstration of Discrete Time Crystals with photons. The demonstration was made through experiments performed at OEwaves using two lasers exciting two modes in a crystalline Whispering Gallery Mode (WGM) resonator; under specific conditions this system generates Discrete Time Crystals. Time Crystals are temporal analogs of the familiar (space) crystals such as salt and promise important applications in high performance oscillators and clocks, and ultra-low noise lasers, amongst others. OEwaves utilizes crystalline WGM resonators in its proprietary approach for realization of its high-performance oscillator products. The paper’s authors include Hossein Taheri of UC Riverside, Andrey Matsko of JPL, Lute Maleki of OEwaves, and Krzysztof Sacha of Jagiellonian University, Poland.
