Atom interferometry for high sensitivity in inertial measurements

Atom interferometry is based on the wave-matter duality principle, stated by Louis de Broglie. In practice, most of the atom interferometers are based on the manipulation of the atomic wave-packets (splitting, deflection) by light. Since the pioneering experiments of 1991, atom interferometry has established as a unique tool for precision measurements of fundamental constants and of gravito- inertial effects. Atom interferometry covers multiple applications in metrology, inertial navigation, geophysics, tests of fundamental physics, and has been proposed for gravitational wave detection. Indeed, atom interferometry combines both intrinsic high sensitivity and accuracy thanks to the high level of control of the atom-laser interaction. Two main classes of interferometers are studies: interferometers with atoms in free fall, which already achieve state of the art performances, and interferometers trapped or guided atoms, more prospective and opening for new applications. I will illustrate theses developments through different projects we are carrying.
