Abstract
Co-magneometer atomic spin gyroscopes are rapidly progressing towards very high levels of sensitivity. The proposed work focuses on the engineering necessary to fully utilize the fundamental sensitivity of these sensors. In particular, we propose to develop a new probe beam optical system that promises to reduce bias drift significantly. We also seek to extend our existing control system to properly control scale factor error and cross-axis misalignment.
