Abstract
The SBIR proposal describes the development and test results of a high-sensitivity laser magnetometer for ASW using Optically-driven Spin Prescession (OSP) to induce and observe magnetic resonance in the helium cell. The OSP laser magnetometer is an innovative sensitivity instrument capable of measuring scalar DC and ELF magnetic fields with sensitivity better than 0.3 pT/root Hz. This sensitivity was demonstrated in Phase I of this program. The feasibility of fabricationg a high sensitivity breadboard OSP magnetometer in Phase II was established in Phase I.
