Abstract
We propose to develop extremely compact and rugged laser systems for emerging cold-atom-based sensors of time, gravity, and inertial forces. Our goal is to integrate distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) lasers, semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA), high-speed detectors, phase/frequency detectors, phase modulators, and optical routing, splitting and combining circuits onto GaAs substrates resulting in chip-sized photonic integrated circuits for cold-atom and other spectroscopic-based sensors. In Phase I we will develop laser systems and electronics that will serve as a precursor to fully integrated photonic integrated circuit.
