Menlo systems – View into the universe

Italian researchers synchronized two remote radio telescopes by transferring time signals, derived from Italy’s atomic clocks, to their individual local clocks.

The up- and down-conversion of microwave and optical signals in use was carried out by two FC1500 optical frequency combs and a PMWG-1500 ultrastable microwave generator system.

This technique will significantly enhance the precision of observations of radio emission sources in the Universe.
