EFTS 2016 Program

Lectures and Seminars

  • Introduction to TF - Basic concepts and vocabulary (quality, certification, traceability etc), and technical issues (oscillators, frequency standards, accuracy, stability, phase noise, jitter, physical environment, etc.).
  • Measurement methods and experimental techniques - Spectra (phase noise and L(f), amplitude noise), variances, frequency measurement and comparison.
  • Atomic clocks - Physics, traditional clocks (atomic beam, vapor cell, and maser), cold atoms, optical clocks, small-size clocks.
  • Oscillators - RF/microwave, cavity-stabilized lasers, optical frequency combs.
  • Timing and applications - Time scales, navigation, frequency transfer and synchronization.
  • Physics, applications, and trends.

The EFTS 2016 course programme:

Hands-on Laboratory Courses

  • Laboratory sessions - Frequency stability and AM/PM noise, resonators and oscillators, timing and synchronization, vapor cell clocks, cold atoms, etc. Every day, the attendees will do real experiments and measurements.

Social Events

Visit of Besançon's Time Museum - (downtown City)
Nigth session at the Observatory's telescopes, (depending on weather conditions)
Social Dinner
Femto-ST Lab Tour
