Comment on: Magnetic field measurements in Rb vapor by splitting Hanle resonances under the presence of a perpendicular scanning magnetic field

Weis, Antoine ; Shi, Yongqi ; Grujić, Zoran D.

In: The European Physical Journal D, 2017, vol. 71, no. 4, p. 80

In a recent article in this journal Grewal and Pattabiraman reported on the splitting of ground state Hanle resonances (recorded with linearly polarized light) by a transverse field. They claimed a “linearly proportional” dependence on the transverse field strength and supported this observation with results from numerical simulations. In this comment we argue that the splitting occurs...

Orientational dependence of optically detected magnetic resonance signals in laser-driven atomic magnetometers

Colombo, Simone ; Dolgovskiy, Vladimir ; Scholtes, Theo ; Grujić, Zoran D. ; Lebedev, Victor ; Weis, Antoine

In: Applied Physics B, 2017, vol. 123, no. 1, p. 35

We have investigated the dependence of lock-in-demodulated Mx-magnetometer signals on the orientation of the static magnetic field B0 of interest. Magnetic resonance spectra for 2400 discrete orientations of B0 covering a 4π solid angle have been recorded by a PC-controlled steering and data acquisition system. Off-line fits by previously derived lineshape functions allow us to extract the...

Roadmap on quantum optical systems

Dumke, Rainer ; Lu, Zehuang ; Close, John ; Robins, Nick ; Weis, Antoine ; Mukherjee, Manas ; Birkl, Gerhard ; Hufnagel, Christoph ; Amico, Luigi ; Boshier, Malcolm G ; Dieckmann, Kai ; Li, Wenhui ; Killian, Thomas C

In: Journal of Optics, 2016, vol. 18, no. 9, p. 093001

This roadmap bundles fast developing topics in experimental optical quantum sciences, addressing current challenges as well as potential advances in future research. We have focused on three main areas: quantum assisted high precision measurements, quantum information/simulation, and quantum gases. Quantum assisted high precision measurements are discussed in the first three sections, which ...

A magnetic source imaging camera

Dolgovskiy, Vladimir ; Fescenko, Ilja ; Sekiguchi, N. ; Colombo, Simone ; Lebedev, Victor ; Zhang, J. ; Weis, Antoine

In: Applied Physics Letters, 2016, vol. 109, no. 2, p. 023505

We describe a magnetic source imaging camera (MSIC) allowing a direct dynamic visualization of the two-dimensional spatial distribution of the individual components Bx(x,y), By(x,y) and Bz(x,y) of a magnetic field. The field patterns allow—in principle— a reconstruction of the distribution of sources that produce the field B→ by inverse problem analysis. We compare experimentally...

M(H) dependence and size distribution of SPIONs measured by atomic magnetometry

Colombo, Simone ; Lebedev, Victor ; Grujic, Zoran Dragan ; Dolgovskiy, Vladimir ; Weis, Antoine

In: International Journal on Magnetic Particle Imaging, 2016, vol. 2, no. 1, p. -

We demonstrate that the quasistatic recording of the magnetic excitation function M(H) of superparamagnetic iron oxide magnetic nanoparticle (SPION) suspensions by an atomic magnetometer allows a precision determination of the sample’s iron mass contentmFe and the particle size distribution.

MPS and ACS with an atomic magnetometer

Colombo, Simone ; Lebedev, Victor ; Grujic, Zoran Dragan ; Dolgovskiy, Vladimir ; Weis, Antoine

In: International Journal on Magnetic Particle Imaging, 2016, vol. 2, no. 1, p. -

We show that a single atomic magnetometer in a magnetically unshielded environment can be used to perform magnetic particle spectroscopy (MPS) and AC susceptometry (ACS) on liquid-suspended magnetic nanoparticles. We demonstrate methods allowing a simultaneous recording of M(H) and dM/dH(H) dependences of samples containing down to 1 μg of iron. Our results pave the way towards an atomic...

In: Physical Review D, 2015, vol. 92, no. 9, p. 092003

We present for the first time a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the experimental results that set the current world sensitivity limit on the magnitude of the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the neutron. We have extended and enhanced our earlier analysis to include recent developments in the understanding of the effects of gravity in depolarizing ultracold neutrons; an improved calculation...

Investigation of the intrinsic sensitivity of a ³He/Cs magnetometer

Koch, Hans Christian ; Bison, Georg ; Grujić, Zoran D. ; Heil, Werner ; Kasprzak, Malgorzata ; Knowles, Paul ; Kraft, Andreas ; Pazgalev, Anatoly ; Schnabel, Allard ; Voigt, Jens ; Weis, Antoine

In: The European Physical Journal D, 2015, vol. 69, no. 11, p. 1–11

We report on extensive studies on the intrinsic sensitivity of a combined ³He/Cs magnetometer. The magnetometer relies on the detection of the free spin precession of nuclear spin polarized ³He by optically pumped cesium magnetometers. We characterize the relevant processes involved in the detection and quantify their impact on the total sensitivity of the magnetometer. An expression is derived...

In: The European Physical Journal A, 2015, vol. 51, no. 11, p. 1–10

We report on the design and first tests of a device allowing for measurement of ultracold neutrons polarisation by means of the simultaneous analysis of the two spin components. The device was developed in the framework of the neutron electric dipole moment experiment at the Paul Scherrer Institute. Individual parts and the entire newly built system have been characterised with ultracold...

In: Physical Review Letters, 2015, vol. 115, no. 16, p. 162502

We describe a spin-echo method for ultracold neutrons (UCNs) confined in a precession chamber and exposed to a |B0|=1 μT magnetic field. We have demonstrated that the analysis of UCN spin-echo resonance signals in combination with knowledge of the ambient magnetic field provides an excellent method by which to reconstruct the energy spectrum of a confined ensemble of neutrons. The method...
