Paper Abstract

This paper describes a technique that allows measurement of very small alternating accelerations. It is based on a quantum version of a lock-in amplifier,1 which filters out spectral components far from the frequency of the measured signal, improving the signal-to-noise ratio of the measurement. As a proof-of-principle, a controlled experiment using microwave radiation is performed, modulating the phase of the control pulses at a given frequency. A strong response at twice the modulation frequency is observed as expected. Preliminary results of measurements taken with Raman control are also presented, in which a controlled modulation of the phase was obtained by modulating a piezoelectric actuator, causing one of the Raman mirrors to vibrate.
