Spin-exchange pumped NMR gyros scale well to small volumes due to the gentle 1/L scaling of the fundamental NMR relaxation rates with cell size L and their use of imbedded ultra sensitive atomic

A Synchronous Spin-Exchange Optically Pumped NMR-Gyroscope

Inertial navigation systems generally consist of timing, acceleration, and orientation measurement units. Although much progress has been made towards developing primary timing sources such as atomic

Comparison of Compensation Mechanism Between an NMR Gyroscope and an SERF Gyroscope

Through analysis of the compensation mechanism of nuclear-magnetic-resonance (NMR) gyroscope and spin-exchange-relaxation-free (SERF) gyroscope, we demonstrate that there is a common model for these

The influences of cell’s temperature characteristic on the performance of nuclear magnetic resonance gyroscope

Systematic errors resulting from differential alkali field, electric quadrupole interactions are the keys to the long-term stability of the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) gyros. In this paper, we

Analysis on the Magnetic Field Response for Nuclear Spin Co-Magnetometer Operated in Spin-Exchange Relaxation-Free Regime

The results here not only give insight into the nature of self-compensate characteristic but also provide a precise model for the estimation of the magnetic noise-induced rotation measurement error in a SERF co-magnetometer.

Response dynamics of an alkali-metal–noble-gas hybrid trispin system

With numerical calculation of coupled Bloch equations, we have simulated the spin dynamics of nuclear magnetic resonance gyroscope based on alkali metal-noble gas hybrid trispin system. From the

Closed-Loop Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Gyroscope Based on Rb-Xe

A theoretical model for the closed-loop NMRG system based on the spin-exchange optical pumping of Rb-Xe is established and the transfer function is obtained, resulting in results in good agreement with the theoretical data.

Suppression of the Bias Error Induced by Magnetic Noise in a Spin-Exchange Relaxation-Free Gyroscope

Spin-exchange relaxation-free gyroscope (SERFG) is a promising rotation sensor, and the bias error is one of its most important characteristics. It is identified that rotation measurement noise



Synchronous Spin-Exchange Optical Pumping.

A new approach to precision NMR with hyperpolarized gases designed to mitigate NMR shifts due to the alkali spin-exchange field is demonstrated, allowing the Rb polarization to be optically pumped transverse to the bias field.

Suppression of spin-exchange relaxation using pulsed parametric resonance.

We demonstrate that spin-exchange dephasing of Larmor precession at near-Earth-scale fields is effectively eliminated by dressing the alkali-metal atom spins in a sequence of ac-coupled 2π pulses,

A nuclear spin gyroscope based on an alkali-metal-noble-gas comagnetometer to detect gyroscopic precession and a promising tool in searches for anomalous spin couplings beyond the standard model.

Spin-exchange optical pumping of noble-gas nuclei

Spin-exchange optical pumping of mixtures of alkali-metal vapors and noble gases can be used to efficiently polarize the nuclei of the noble-gas atoms. Liters of noble gases at standard temperature

New limit on Lorentz- and CPT-violating neutron spin interactions.

Atomic Electric Dipole Moment Measurement Using Spin Exchange Pumped Masers of 129Xe and 3He.

The comagnetometer provides a direct measure of several systematic effects that may limit electric dipole moment sensitivity, and the effects of changes in leakage current that result when the applied electric field is changed are measured.

Polarization of the nuclear spins of noble-gas atoms by spin exchange with optically pumped alkali-metal atoms

The theory of spin exchange between optically pumped alkali-Inetal atoms and noble-gas nuclei is presented. Spin exchange with heavy noble gases is dominated by interactions in long-lived van der

A nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) gyroscope senses rotation as a shift in the Larmor frequency of nuclear magnetic moments as they precess about an applied field. A sensitive optically pumped
