Group Seminar via Zoom: Towards development of mobile gravimeter using cold atom interferometry
Karthick Ramanathan, Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST), India
Group meeting via video conference (Zoom)
Tuesday, February 22, 9:00 am (MEZ)
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are still holding our group seminars and journal clubs via video conference. This procedure enables us to continue our research, enhance discussions and exchange important information.
Abstract: Cold atom interferometry has emerged as a potent tool for performing precision measurements over the last two decades. In particular, there has been growing interest in the development of mobile quantum sensors for metrology and navigation. Here, I give an introductory level talk on how an atom interferometer can be used for the measurement of gravitational acceleration, with emphasis on the standard techniques involved in the realization of optical elements in atom optics, such as beamsplitters and mirrors. I also provide an outlook on different techniques used to improve measurement sensitivity which are employed in the more state-of-the-art experiments.
