The Unitive team are proud to have been part of the MITOS project funded by the European Commission Eranet Photonic sensing programme to investigate new technologies to solve real problems using photonic techniques. The project is a collaboration between University College London (UCL), The National Institute of Optics Pisa (INO), Marwan Technologies, Valis Engineering and Unitive Design.
The technonology is based on ultra-sensitive radio-frequency atomic magnetometers and cold atom trapped magnetometers developed by the UCL and INO teams. These techniques push sensitivity down to the 100s of pT/√Hz level while at the same time allow for the technology to be miniaturised.
The aim of the project is to miniaturise the existing lab-based technology and make it robust enough for deployment while, at the same time, not degrading the extremely high magnetic field sensitivity. Ultimately, the project will deploy the imager in a real-world environment for feedback from stakeholders and potential end users.
