Work Context

SYRTE is one of the world leading metrology laboratories working in the field of atom interferometry with cold atom. The laboratory develops state-of-the-art projection noise limited frequency standards and inertial sensors. The research activities of the laboratory have a significant impact on the industrial applications of cold atoms. The first cold atom gyroscope was built at the SYRTE laboratory by the AIIS group and our primary frequency standards, besides of contributing to the International Atomic Time (TAI), they also participate to the European Global Positioning System (GPS) via the telecommunication and
radionavigation satellites EGNOS and GALILEO.
