The Rubidium Magneto Optical Trap (Rb-MOT) is a next generation, quantum technology that enables ultra-sensitive gravity measurement. Satellite based gravimetric sensing is an important tool for monitoring climate change via remote measurement of water tables and ice mass.
- Develop the world’s first ruggedized, frequency doubling module for 1560 to780nm conversion, generating over 1Woutput power, to drive Rb-based quantum technologies.
- Test the optical package under ‘harsh’ environmental conditions (temperature, shock, vibration, radiation).
- Demonstrate operation of the module within a Rb-MOT.
