7 March 2016 Optical system design for femtosecond-level synchronization of clocks
Author Affiliations +
Synchronization of optical clocks via optical two-way time-frequency transfer across free-space links can result in time offsets between the two clocks below tens of femtoseconds over many hours. The complex optical system necessary to support such synchronization is described in detail here.
