Testing the gravity-quantum interface with optomechanics and quantum memories


Seminar talk

It has become one of the major endeavors in physics to understand the interplay between two of our most successful theories, quantum mechanics and general relativity. These efforts have to be guided by experiments and observations at the interface of the two theories. In this talk, two specific examples of experimental proposals will be presented:
a) A potential route to obtain evidence for quantized gravity by employing gravitationally coupled quantum optomechanical sensors.
b) An investigation of the effect of gravitational time dilation on photonic states stored in quantum memories.
The prospects to perform the corresponding experiments with near-future technology will also be discussed.
