New Delhi: The minute hand on the Doomsday Clock ticked closer as Austraila has launched a new “doomsday” clock to help prevent the country from future threats, with such high precision accuracy, it can prevent ballistic missile strikes.
According to the reports, the device is known as the Sapphire Clock, this will be able to keep time within one second over 40 million years – making it one of the most precise clocks in the world.
How will high-precision clock help?
The high-precision clock will help in providing more detailed information on missile strikes, planes, and ships that could threaten or can harm the country’s defence.
Professor Luiten, University of Adelaide’s Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing director, said the technology was created in a “dusty basement” nearly 20 years ago.
How can accurate clocks help devices work?
it is said that the accurate clocks can help devices work more effectively, and could also be used to better enhance Australia’s telecommunications network.
Accurate clocks are sitting inside lots of things: Professor Luiten
“When you want things to work together nicely you need to have clocks everywhere, they’re buried inside devices.”
The Sapphire Clock will be used to enhance Australia’s Jindalee Over-The-Horizon Radar Network (JORN) system, its current defence strategy to help detect far away objects such as planes, ships and other devices.
The precision clock would enable the radar network to send out signals 1000 times more efficiently and accurately, allowing even the smallest objects to be spotted at further distances.
The better signals you can send out the better information you can drive: Professor Luitten
“Sending a pure signal with radar depends on access to clocks, and the better quality the clock, the better the information.
“It’s pretty magic stuff, they’re sending signals out and a tiny, tiny amount of that power comes back.
“The purer the signal, the smaller the change you can measure in the signal coming back and that gives you more precise information. This will make all Australians safe.”
At that crazy low temperature, it basically is a perfect vibrating bell: Prof Luiten
“The analogy is if it was a bell and you struck it, it would ring for more than a month.”
“It’s like a glorified grandfather clock, it repeats over and over again and it repeats in a very particular way.”
“This will hopefully do more than safeguard Australians but generate jobs and wealth.”
“It would be an absolutely huge market. That’s the long-term vision.”
“Our clock is the best clock in the whole world because it holds times better than anything else.”
Prof Luiten said the clock will be tested later this year.
