The accuracy and precision of current atom-interferometric inertial sensors rival state-of-theart conventional devices using artifact-based test masses1. Atomic sensors are well suited for fundamental measurements of gravito-inertial fields. The sensitivity required to test gravitational theories can be achieved by extending the baseline of the interferometer2. The I.C.E. (Interférométrie Cohérente pour l’Espace) interferometer aims to achieve long interrogation times in compact apparatus via… CONTINUE READING
