   Phase I Abstract   
Modern atomic magnetometer technology is poised to deliver total magnetic field measurements in a sensor that is dramatically less expensive, smaller, and lower-power relative to currently-available .....

   Phase II Abstract   
We propose to build prototype magnetometers with sensitivity in the range 1--10 $\mathrm{pT/Hz^{1/2}}$ and unit cost of \$2,000, meeting the need for a low-cost system with performance comparable to .....
