Quantum Control of Gravity with Levitated Mechanics

QuCoM will explore the interplay between quantum mechanics and gravity in a parameter range accessible for cost-effective table-top experiments. It will suspend sub millimetre-sized particles in optical and magnetic traps and use them to detect gravitational forces in an unprecedented mass regime. Also, it will investigate quantum superpositions where such masses are delocalized in space quantum mechanically. With a 2.3 million Euros grant, the project will address some of the most popular theoretical proposals combining quantum physics and gravity in a nonstandard fashion, assessing their limits of validity and further constraining the values of their parameters.
