Optical clocks have demonstrated an improvement in temporal accuracy of several orders of magnitude over existing time standards based on caesium. Such systems hold great promise in many industrial sectors including financial time stamping, GPS-free navigation and network synchronisation. Atom interferometry has proven to be a reliable method of precision gravity sensing and finds application in geological studies, including earthquake warning systems and oil exploration. Such systems require a number of sophisticated lasers in a compact and reliable format for use outside of a laboratory environment, suitable for commercialisation and user transportation. Of particular interest, is emerging AlGaInN laser diode technology that has the potential to provide practical solutions for next generation optical clock technology.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
