Graz University of Technology

Graz University of Technology - Institute for Experimental Physics

Research is currently being conducted at the Institute for Experimental Physics in the areas of spectroscopy and quantum optics as well as molecular physics.

Technologies and competences

A sub-research field of quantum optics is the study of coherent effects in the optical stimulation of atoms with laser light. This results in the development of optical, pumped magnetometers with applications in space technology (instruments and payloads). Competences include the development of laser sources, fibre-optical systems and microwave technology in connection with the modulation of lasers.

Products and services in space

  • Optically pumped, scalar magnetometer based on a quantum interference effect

Space related test benches, laboratories, etc.

Optical laboratory with all the associated equipment for the development and characterisation of laser sources (diode lasers), as well as equipment for the characterisation of low-noise amplifiers and low-noise laser power sources, and generators and spectrum analysers for measurements in the GHz range.
