Waveguide-integrated Rydberg Atom-based RF Field Detector for Near-field Antenna Measurements
Matthew T. Simons, Abdulaziz H. Haddab, Joshua A. Gordon, Christopher L. Holloway
We demonstrate amplitude and phase measurements of an RF field in the near-field of a horn antenna using a Rydberg atom-based sensor embedded inside a waveguiding structure. This measurement uses the Rydberg atom-based sensor in a mixer configuration, which requires the presence of a local oscillator RF field. The waveguiding structure supplies the LO field. The combined waveguide and Rydberg atom system can be used for simultaneous amplitude and phase detection of incident RF fields through an atom-based measurement.
