Atomic Clock Market: Introduction
- An atomic clock uses certain resonance frequencies of atoms to keep time with extreme accuracy. The frequency of the microwave electromagnetic radiation regulates the electronic components of atomic clocks. In an atomic clock, the natural oscillation of atoms acts like the pendulum in a grandfather clock. Higher and stable frequency of atomic oscillations make atomic clocks more precise than conventional clocks.
Key Drivers of the Global Atomic Clock Market
- Technology advancement and high demand across end-use industries are key drivers of the global atomic clock market. Atomic clocks are widely used in satellite navigation systems as they are lightweight, easy to build, slim, and also cost-effective. Rubidium (Rb) atomic clocks are primarily used in satellite navigation systems along with other atomic clocks.
- Key manufacturers are investing in new technology to introduce a comprehensive product range according to evolving atomic frequency standards. Many researchers of well-known research institutes are adopting atomic clocks to increase the measurement accuracy and synchronize to a single precise time standard.
Opportunities in the Global Atomic Clock Market
- Ongoing investment in the space research and aerospace industry is anticipated to foster the demand for atomic clocks during the forecast period. For instance, NASA's “Jet Propulsion Laboratory” is testing their “Deep Space Atomic Clock” to assist spacecraft to reach destinations as far as Mars and beyond. Space research laboratories often work in parallel with a commercial manufacturer to develop smaller and higher precision atomic clocks.
