News & press releases
AOSense was pleased to participate in the American Physical Society (APS) Division of Atomic, Molecular & Optical Physics (DAMOP) meeting from June 5-9, 2017 in Sacramento. We exhibited our ECDLs, Integrated Laser Controllers (ILCs), ILC-Servos, miniature ion pump, atom sources, and miniature optical isolators.
We presented a poster, “Development of an Atom Interferometer Gravity Gradiometer for Earth Sciences,” detailing our work funded by and in collaboration with NASA.
AOSense President Brent Young discussed Industry Careers in AMO Physics as a panelist. Please see our Careers page for any openings.
The Washington Post covered Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter’s speech at Stanford University, in which he mentioned AOSense’s work on navigation sensors.
Physics Today presents an overview of several DARPA programs that aim to improve positioning, navigation, and timing – including AOSense’s work on cold atom inertial sensors and optical clocks.
Defense One cites Chip-Scale Combinatorial Atomic Navigation (C-SCAN) and Quantum Assisted Sensing and Readout (QuASAR) DARPA programs, two major AOSense projects, as key DARPA efforts to improve upon GPS with atomic sensors.
AOSense was featured in an article by NASA Goddard Office of the Chief Technologist:
AOSense is collaborating with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on development of sensors and algorithms for detecting the gravity signature of nuclear material for vehicle border crossings, as highlighted in the following Lawrence Livermore Science & Technology Review article:
GPS World has an article about our DARPA C-SCAN effort to make compact, high performance inertial measurement units suitable for widespread deployment on highly dynamic platforms.
AOSense has been awarded a contract under the DARPA C-SCAN program. For more information, see the article in Military & Aerospace Electronics magazine here:
NASA Goddard has awarded AOSense a Phase II SBIR contract under the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program to develop next-generation atom-optics technologies that may be suitable for gravity wave detection.
