Using shot noise limited Quantum-Non-Demolition measurements, we prepare an entangled, spin squeezed ensemble of 105 cold Cs atoms [1], which we use to improve the precision of an atomic clock by >1 dB beyond the projection noise limit [2]. We report on progress towards applying our method for realizing and characterizing non-Gaussian atomic states.
