Quantum sensors exploiting matter waves interferometry promise to realize a new generation of Gravitational Wave detectors. The intrinsic stability of specific atomic energy levels makes atom interferometers and clocks ideal candidates to extend the frequency window for the observation of Gravitational Waves in the mid-frequency band, ranging from 10 mHz to 10 Hz. We present the geometry and functioning of this new class of ground and space detectors and detail their main noise sources. We…
