Morrison, Rhys — A Radio-Frequency Dressed Ringtrap for Cold Atom Interferometry

I present a scheme that would allow for the controlled motion of cold atoms around a Sagnac interferometer through use of Radio-Frequency (RF) dressed magnetic traps. Multiple interesting geometries of traps have already been created for atoms in the microkelvin range. This talk will aim to give a brief overview of RF dressed traps, give examples of traps that have currently been realised in our experiment, and finally explain how these dressed traps may be used to perform atomic interferometry.
