Abstract:

In this note we provide a brief summary of vibration isolation techniques and their application to our neutral atom interferometry experiments at the UC Berkeley Physics Department. Naturally, the difficulty in achieving acceptable vibration isolation for any given experiment depends largely upon the noise sensitivity of the experiment. Since neutral atom interferometers may be configured to act as ultra-sensitive inertial sensors, their vibrational noise sensitivity is inherently high.
