Clockmakers gather in Queenstown

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:42 pm on 10 July 2019

The world's top clockmakers are gathering in Queenstown this week, to discuss quantum science.

These scientists are pushing to make the measurement of time more precise. That may sound unnecessary but it's crucial to understanding the quantum world. 

Murray Barrett is an ex-Otago student who know works at the Centre of Quantum Technologies in Singapore. He's in the country for the conference hosted by the Dodd-Walls Centre.
