The role of acousto-optical devices in quantum sensing and metrology

Acousto-optic devices play a role in quantum sensing and metrology by enhancing the precision of measurements. By modulating the phase or frequency of laser beams used in interferometry setups, AOMs enable high-resolution measurements of physical quantities such as distance, time, and magnetic fields. These advancements have applications in gravitational wave detection, precision navigation, and quantum-enhanced imaging.
