Title: Quantum sensing with ultracold atoms

Abstract:

The best clocks in the world would go wrong by only one second over the age of the universe. This extraordinary precision is enabled by the frequency reference used in these clocks: ultranarrow optical transitions of atoms that are cooled to near standstill. These clocks enable searches for dark matter or changing fundamental constants, and will enable faster and GPS outage resilient telecommunication or cm-precision terrestrial navigation. Ultracold atoms are similarly used as test masses in precision accelerometers, which are already useful for underground exploration and further developed for dark matter and gravitational wave detection or inertial navigation.

Around the world efforts are underway to improve those quantum sensors or to render them cheaper, more compact and reliable. Our group contributes to these efforts by developing a novel type of clock, based on continuous superradiant lasing, and a continuous atom laser, which might enable better accelerometers.
