Atomic-optical magnetometer has been one of the leading areas in quantum technology. In this type of magnetometer information about the magnetic field is mapped to the atomic spin state, which is prepared and monitored by light.


The main interest of our group is to exploit quantum resources such as squeezing and entanglement in order to enhance the capacity, sensitivity and speed in atomic-optical magnetometers. We aim at developing new methodological approaches and implement robust experimental procedures at the quantum interface between light and warm atomic ensembles in order to perform sensing at the ultimate limits of precision. We are also interested in practical applications of ultra-sensitive magnetometer, for instance in biomedicine or in security screening.
