Gravitime Pendulum is a simple maintained pendulum in order to realize a travelling educational experiment,dedicated to scientific events for the general public, for high schools and museum institutions all over the world.Its essential aim being to sensitize the public to the metrological procedure through the operation of identificationof the acceleration of gravity by the measure of different frequencies.
A “general public” conference as part of the “Nuit des Temps” event was recorded. Please find it on the SFP YouTube channel: Gravitime Pendulum


PhD defense by Lucas Groult – July 7st 2021 at 2PM

Lucas Groult will defend his thesis on July 7th 2021, entitled: “Conception d’un piège de Paul microfabriqué pour le développement d’une horloge optique compacte, à ion piégé Yb+”, prepared at the University of Bourgogne Franche-Comté, in collaboration with FEMTO-ST and under the supervision of Yann Kersalé. The defense will be  in the amphithéâtre Jules Haag – ENSMM – 26, Rue de l’Epitaphe – Besançon.

Rodolphe Boudot (FEMTO-ST) received the 2020 EFTF Young Scientist Award

The EFTF Young Scientist Award 2020 goes to Dr. Rodolphe Boudot ,”for his outstanding contributions to the development of high-performance compact and miniature CPT atomic clocks.”
The EFTF Young Scientist Award is conferred in recognition of a personal contribution that demonstrated a high degree of initiative and creativity and led to already established or easily foreseeable outstanding advances in the field of time and frequency metrology. The award honours a person under the age of 40 at the date of the opening session of the EFTF conference.
