A phenomenon of quantum mechanics known as superposition can impact timekeeping in high-precision clocks, according to a theoretical study from Dartmouth College, Saint Anselm College and Santa Clara University.
Research describing the effect shows that superpositionthe ability of an atom to exist in more than one state at the same timeleads to a correction in atomic clocks known as “quantum time dilation.”
The research, published in the journal Nature Communications, takes into account quantum…
