Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on several key ideas to using atom interferometry to detect rotation within the context of an atom trap or “guide”. I discuss shortcomings of traditional free space light pulse atom interferometry that the advantages of guided light pulse atom interferometry can mitigate and under what conditions that strategy is possible. There is discussion of requirements for the light pulses, and the properties of the waveguide that will be needed for guided atom interferometry to successfully improve on the capability of free space light pulse atom interferometry.
