Summary on Grant Application Form
Portable unshielded atomic magnetometry offers significant enhancement in the sensitivity of compact magnetometers. This project will develop the design and optimisation of the atomic vapour cell, which is a critical component of these sensors. Exploiting expertise at Strathclyde University, Inex, Fraunhofer CAP and Thales, we will develop mass-producible atomic vapour cells in tandem with system-level demonstration of unshielded atomic magnetometry. By combining technical development with important steps in application and market development, we will significantly close the gap between laboratory measurement and real-world application.
