Abstract : Inertial sensors using atomic interferometry is a potential breakthrough technology for high precision accelerometers and gyrometers used in land, air or spatial navigation or geodesy. These high precision sensors offer also new developing prospects concerning Earth observation, fundamental physics, metrology and boreholes gravimeter. The exploiting of this cold atoms sensors is based on the possibility to miniaturize and simplify the current systems developed in the research groups. This miniaturization needs both fundamental investigation on new atomic sources and efforts to turn this laboratory devices into compact, reliable and self-working systems. The main goal of this project is to conceive and build a compact cold atom interferometer. To reach this goal, this project gave birth to a collaboration between research laboratory Institut d-Optique, Syrte and manufacturers specialized in integrated optical sensors THALES, IXSEA and in integrated optics KLOE.
