Atom Interferometer Provides Most Precise Test Yet of Einstein's Gravitational Redshift

While airplane and rocket experiments have proved that gravity makes clocks tick more slowly -- a central prediction of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity -- a new experiment in an atom interferometer measures this slowdown 10,000 times more accurately than before, and finds it to be exactly what Einstein predicted.

The result shows once again how well Einstein's theory describes the real world, said Holger MŁller, an assistant professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley.
