Abstract
We propose to develop a universal atomic magnetometer magnetometer capable of operation as either a three-axis vector atomic magnetometer or a scalar (total field) atomic magnetometer. We furthermore operate the magnetometer in a regime that is inherently free of sources of drift in the lasers or cell to achieve unprecedented low drift at low frequency. The magnetometer is being developed for volume manufacture and is capable of competing with with fluxgate magnetometers on both performance and price.
