Using quantum mechanics to beat the classical precision limit

The hands of a clock tell the whole story. Technical factors place limits on the precision of the reading. For physicists, so-called shot noise also imposes such a limit. It occurs for example when electric current has to overcome a barrier. At present, all precision measurements work close to this limit. Physicists from Heidelberg University have now demonstrated that this limit can be surpassed by drawing on concepts from quantum mechanics.
