Colloquium: Markus Aspelmeyer: "How does a quantum object gravitate?"

When: Friday, November 11, 2022
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Central

Where: Technological Institute, L211, 2145 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208 map it

Audience: Faculty/Staff - Student - Post Docs/Docs - Graduate Students

Contact: Joan West   (847) 491-3645

Group: Physics and Astronomy Colloquia

Category: Academic

Description:

No experiment today provides evidence that gravity requires a quantum description. The growing ability to achieve quantum optical control over massive solid-state objects may change that situation – by enabling experiments that directly probe the phenomenology of quantum states of gravitational source masses. I will review the current status in the lab and the challenges to be overcome for future experiments.

Speaker: Professor Markus Aspelmeyer, University of Vienna

Hosts: Professor Andy Geraci, Professor Tim Kovachy
