Gravity & Inertial Sensors by AOSense, Inc.


AOSense, Inc. designs and builds innovative gravity and inertial sensors based on atom optics (AO) techniques.  The test masses in our sensors are clouds of laser-cooled atoms freely falling in a vacuum cell.  Frequency-stable lasers measure the motion of these atoms relative to the sensor platform.  These two characteristics of AO sensors provide exquisite accuracy and stability, far surpassing the performance of conventional sensors.


At present, we are building sensors for university and government R&D projects.  However, we would welcome the opportunity to speak with potential future customers about possible applications of AO sensors for navigation, geophysical exploration, or other uses.
