The project would conduct optimization experiments on the bench-top magnetometer, build and integrate the results of the now completed Office of Naval Research (ONR) study with our work, and further explore mission concepts and link budgets.
There are several tasks involved in this project: optimization of excitation wavelength distribution, the laser spectral energy distribution, the laser polarization, and the optimum optical receiver configuration, in order to recover scalar and some vector magnetic fields of importance to both planetary and terrestrial solid body, and magnetospheric/heliospheric science.More »
