  1. Approximation of TAI second and generation of the National Time Scale, UTC(TP).
  2. Near-real-time evaluation of UTC(TP) through GPS common views with selected UTC(k).
  3. Comparisons of four cesium clocks contributing to TAI.
  4. Continuous evaluation of time transfer links to/from IPE (fiber optic links, GPS).
  5. Periodic calibration of IPE’s frequency-stability measurement systems.
  6. Dissemination of UTC(TP) via IPE’s time server.
  7. Calibrations of precision frequency sources and disciplined clocks.
  8. Expertise and consultations for time/ frequency calibration services, industries and general public.
  9. Representation of the Czech Republic in EURAMET



IPE carries out fundamental and applied research in the scientific fields of photonics, optoelectronics and electronics. In these fields, IPE generates new knowledge and develops new technologies.
