3 August 2016 A new generation of high-performance operational quantum sensors (Conference Presentation)
Author Affiliations +
After 30 years of academic research in cold atom sciences, intensive developments are being conducted to improve the compactness and the reliability of experimental set-ups in order to transfer such devices from laboratory-based research to an operational utilization outside of the laboratory. We will present the long-lasting developments that we have been carrying to provide the first industrial cold-atom absolute gravimeter and the first industrial cold-atom atomic clock. We will present in detail the principles of operation and the main features of our instruments. Their performances in terms of sensitivity, stability and accuracy and the latest results they achieved will be reviewed. We will then discuss their use to support other research activities. One of the key technology elements of such instruments that need to be addressed is the laser system used to cool down and manipulate the atoms. A specific focus on our latest developments in this area in terms of performances will be proposed.
