|Title:||A method for comparing remote optical clocks over a free-space optical link|
|Published:||July 09, 2012|
|Abstract:||We demonstrate a method to compare optical clocks approaching 10-17 uncertainties through the exchange of optical pulses from phase-locked frequency combs. We discuss results over a 120 m air path and prospects for longer distances.|
