Markus Aspelmeyer joins QISS

Markus Aspelmeyer, Director of the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information, has joined QISS. The addition of Markus and his group will support the focus point of exploring experimental possibilities to probe the weak field/low energy aka “table-top” regime of gravitational quantum physics.

For an interesting popularised take on recent experimental trends see the recent article in Scientific American concerning the record setting measurement of the gravitational force between masses of 90micrograms. For a more thorough technical view of recent developments see Markus’s QISS Virtual Seminar: on the role of gravity in table-top quantum experiments.
