"Atom Interferometry on Earth and in Space"

Cass Sackett , UVA - Department of Physics
[Host: Despina Louca]

Atom interferometers are a type of quantum sensor useful for navigation, geographics, and tests of fundamental physics. We report on recent progress in three areas: a trapped-atom Sagnac interferometer for rotation sensing, the use of atom interferometry to measure "tune-out wavelengths," and a demonstration of atom interferometry in the Cold Atom Laboratory on the ISS. These efforts are representative of the types of efforts begin pursued in the field, including pushing towards practical applications, pursuing basic science, and technology demonstrations to support future applications and science.
