About our work Presentations Publications
We are Here Summer_2017 We are supported by
Princeton University,
Packard Foundation,



Our experiments are performed by a small group of people and use a variety of experimental techniques and devices, such as optical pumping, NMR, high-Tc SQUID magnetometers, single frequency and high power diode lasers, multi-layer magnetic shields and ultra-low noise electronics. Substantial effort is devoted to detailed understanding and modeling of systematic effects. We are also exploring practical applications of the developed techniques, such as sensitive detection and imaging of the magnetic fields produced by the brain.

For more info about the study performed by the Dicke group in the 1950's-60's of the
principle of equivalence of gravitation and acceleration, see Roll, Krotkov and Dicke, Ann. Phys. 26 442 (1964).
