Tabletop Experiments for Quantum Gravity Are Also Tests of the Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
Recently there has been a great deal of interest in tabletop experiments intended to exhibit the quantum nature of gravity by demonstrating that it can induce entanglement. In order to evaluate the
Gravity entanglement, quantum reference systems, degrees of freedom
We discuss the physical interpretation of the gravity mediated entanglement effect. We show how to read it in terms of quantum reference systems. We pinpoint the single gravitational degree of freedom
Photonic Implementation of Quantum Gravity Simulator
Detecting gravity mediated entanglement can provide evidence that the gravitational field obeys quantum mechanics. We report the result of a simulation of the phenomenon using a photonic platform. The

In recent years an increasing number of papers have attempted to mimic or supplant quantum field theory in discussions of issues related to gravity by the tools and through the perspective of quantum
Gravitational effects in macroscopic quantum systems: a first-principles analysis
We analyze the weak-field limit of general relativity with matter and its possible quantisations. This analysis aims toward a predictive quantum theory to provide a first-principles description of
Gravitationally Induced Entanglement between Two Massive Particles is Sufficient Evidence of Quantum Effects in Gravity.
TLDR
This work proves that any system mediating entanglement between two quantum systems must be quantum, and proposes an experiment to detect the entanglements generated between two masses via gravitational interaction, which is closer to realization than detecting gravitons or detecting quantum gravitational vacuum fluctuations.
A no-go theorem on the nature of the gravitational field beyond quantum theory
Recently, table-top experiments involving massive quantum systems have been proposed to test the interface of quantum theory and gravity. In particular, the crucial point of the debate is whether it

Witnessing the quantumness of a system by observing only its classical features
A central problem in fundamental physics is to witness the non-classicality of systems whose dynamics is not completely specified. For example, this arises in testing predictions that a macroscopic
Problems with the Newton–Schrödinger equations
We examine the origin of the Newton–Schrödinger equations (NSEs) that play an important role in alternative quantum theories (AQT), macroscopic quantum mechanics and gravity-induced decoherence. We
An Exactly soluble sector of quantum gravity
Cartan's spacetime reformulation of the Newtonian theory of gravity is a generally-covariant Galilean-relativistic limit-form of Einstein's theory of gravity known as the Newton-Cartan theory.

TLDR
A new parameter-free unification of micro- and macrodynamics is constructed and gravitational measures for reducing macroscopic quantum fluctuations of the mass density are applied to lead to classical trajectories in the Macroscopic limit of translational motion.
