About Us

Our goal is to develop the highest performance atomic devices in the world by combining the latest advances in physics and technology. Our present focus is building optical atomic magnetometers for biomedical and geophysical applications.

QuSpin was started in 2012 with research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our multidisciplinary team of Physicists and Engineers excel at turning a complex laboratory technology into a user-friendly device. Our operations are largely supported by federal research grants as well as through sales of our commercial products.
