The research objective is to generate ultra-cold samples of Rubidium atoms and utilize laser-based manipulation techniques to conduct precise interferometry measurements. The focus lies on the miniaturization of rotation sensors, essential for localization and navigation systems in modern devices. The proposed method involves using Raman transitions in a Point Source Interferometry (PSI) configuration. The PSI technique confines atoms to a specific spin state near a single point in space, allowing them to freely expand while in free-fall. By applying Raman pulses during free-fall, a Mach-Zender-like interferometer is created, enabling precise measurement of the x and y components of the angular rotation velocity.
