Optically Pumped Magnetometers

In the optically pumped magnetometer (OPM) lab we are developing new sensors to be used for MEG. The sensors are based on quantum technology and can detect magnetic fields generated by human brain activity. The sensors are advantageous to conventional SQUID-MEG sensors as they do not required liquid Helium and can be placed close to the human head.
