Subject: Request for SI and ISO names for the six groups from the Yoctosecond to the Plancksecond
TO: CODATA Executive Committee
ATTN: Ms. Bonnie Carroll
We are doing an analysis of the range of natural groups from the Yoctosecond down to what we call the Plancksecond at Planck Time.
We would like to make a formal request of the CODATA Executive Committee to consider meeting to name those six logical groups between the yoctosecond and Planck Time. Thank you.

“The measurement of the Zeptoscond, just one sextillionth of a second — that’s a trillionth of a billionth of a second — is work led by a laser physicist, Martin Schultze. It is truly a measurement by devices, not just a mathematical calculation, and Schultze steps us back into Notation-74 to Notation-77 within our horizontally-scrolled chart.
“On to Planck Time. As fast as it is, that zeptoscond is still rather slow when compared to 10−44 seconds given within Planck Time. Next will be the Yoctosecond (10−24), just one septillionth of a second (10−24). Within our chart, the Yoctosecond ranges from Notations 65-to-67.
“No Names. The actual words for the next six categories down to the Planck scale do not yet exist. Until each group has a name, they have a limited identity and study of them is more difficult.
“The last International System of Units (SI) categories to be added were in 1991. It may well be time to call them back together again. They need to name those next six new groups: 10−27, 10−30, 10−33, 10−36, 10−39, and 10−42 seconds. Planck Time at 5.391 16(13)×10^-44 seconds is within the 10−42 seconds’ expansion. It could be named a Plancksecond or PlanckSecond. To date, that combination of words has only been used casually to refer to an extremely short period of time.”
