A Thought experiment: How to find Chronons?

  1. Dec 26, 2016 #1
    We were recently discussing if time appears quantified. I found the theory about "chronons" (quantums of time) on Wikipedia and I know, those are very theoretical constructs and as far as I found out there is no current research if chronons even exist. But I was wondering if somebody has an (no matter how theoretical) ideal for an (though) experiment, through which one could find Chronons (time quants)? Or is trying to find the smallest possible frame of time a contradiction in terms?
    Maybe somebody also reflected that question before and want's to share his thoughts with me! :-) Thank you!
