JIFX 20-1


Date: November 4, 2019 to November 8, 2019
Location: Camp Roberts

NPS Joint Interagency Field Experimentation (JIFX) 20-1 is scheduled for November 4-8, 2019 in Camp Roberts, CA.

The Joint Interagency Field Experimentation (JIFX) program exists to provide an opportunity for NPS faculty, students, private companies, and academia to demonstrate and evaluate new technologies related to the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense research in an operational field environment, and also to provide the operational community the opportunity to experiment with these technologies to better understand the capabilities that they may represent.

  • We provide a realistic field environment with airspace, buildings, tunnels, forests, open plains, etc.
  • You provide an emerging technology to address challenges faced by the US Military Forces
  • Together we collaborate and learn about challenges your technology may address!

Experiment Proposal Deadline: 20 Sept 2019

Interaction for Atomic Correlation


Date: October 22, 2019
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: Spanagel 117

The October 22, 2019 Physics lecture is titled “Shieldless Optical Magnetometer, EM Field Assisted Dipole-Dipole Interaction for Atomic Correlation” with Prof. Reuben Shuker, Physics, Ben Gurion University Israel. Event will be held in Spanagel 117 at 3:00 p.m.

Abstract
Shield-less Cs based optical magnetometer study will be described, including gradiometric mode experiments. Preliminary results indicate sensitivity on the order of 1 pT. Theoretical sensitivity limit of such device is on the order of 80 fT. Novel physics of quantum correlation of the active atoms in the magnetometer may be able to overcome this limit. The collective effect may result in sensitivity proportional to N^2 rather than linear dependence on N, the number of active atoms.
