Summary form only given. We report on the accurate measurement of the Newtonian constant of gravity G, using an atom interferometry gravity-gradiometer. The probes of the gravitational field are two clouds of laser cooled 87Rb atoms vertically separated. Their differential vertical acceleration is measured for different positions of nearby source masses… CONTINUE READING
