CoQuS Talk by Philipp Haslinger, TU Wien

24.06.2019 17:00 - 19:00

on “Probing the forces of gravity, blackbody radiation and dark energy with matter waves”

 

 

Atom interferometry has proven within the last decades its surprising versatility to sense
with high precision tiniest forces. In this talk I will give an overview of our recent work using
an optical cavity enhanced atom interferometer to sense with gravitational strength for
fifths forces1,2 and for an on the first-place counterintuitive inertial property of blackbody
radiation
