Abstract
This Phase I STTR project will demonstrate that frequency-modulated magneto-optical rotation (FM-NMOR) can provide high sensitivity for an airborne magnetometer. FM-NMOR uses a diode laser to produce a coherent, aligned population of atoms. Polarimetry is used to measure the rotation rate of the atomic alignment, which is proportional to magnetic field. Both magnetometer and gradiometer designs will be evaluated for their capability to detect target magnetic signatures from a distance of 9000 ft.
