Seminar on Thursday

I will present the current experiments in BUAA Opto-Electronic Team. We study fibre optic gyroscopes (FOGs) and the associated technology. FOGs are inertial sensors that can be used to measure angular velocity, which have a lot of military and civilian applications. To improve their performance, we studied the components inside them such as the amplified spontaneous emission source, the small diameter polarization maintaining fibre and the fibre coil. We are also developing the FOGs with photonic crystal fibres (PCFs) as the PCF has excellent polarization maintaining ability, temperature stability and environmental adaptability. In recent several years, we started to study the cold atoms inside the hollow core PCFs. We are trying to design and make new PCFs that can allow us to load more atoms into the fibre.

This talk is part of the Cold atoms series.
