Topical : Quantum Memories for Fundamental Physics in Space Principle
Investigations into the foundations of quantum mechanics and their link to gravity and general relativity require sensitive quantum experiments. To provide ultimate insight, the realization of such
Quantum Matter Overview
Quantum matter (novel phases of matter at zero temperature with exotic properties) is a growing field with applications in its own domain, and in providing foundational support to quantum sciences
Quantum communications in a moderate-to-strong turbulent space
Since the invention of the laser in the 60s, one of the most fundamental communication channels has been the free-space optical channel. For this type of channel, a number of effects generally need
Quantum Scale Estimation
Quantum scale estimation, as introduced and explored here, establishes the most precise framework for the estimation of scale parameters which is allowed by the laws of quantum mechanics. This
Quantum communications in a moderate-to-strong turbulent space
Since the invention of the laser in the 60s, one of the most fundamental communication channels has been the free-space optical channel. For this type of channel, a number of effects generally need
High-performance, additively-manufactured atomic spectroscopy apparatus for portable quantum technologies
We demonstrate a miniaturised and highly robust system for performing Doppler-free spectroscopy on thermal atomic vapour for three frequencies as required for cold atom-based quantum technologies.

A New Interpretation of Contributions Presented at the Solvay Conference 1911 . Can We Falsify the “ Geocentric ” Foundations of Quantum Mechanics in the Solar System ?
DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.24018/ejphysics.2021.3.6.135 Vol 3 | Issue 6 | December 2021 61 Abstract — We have studied the contributions and presentations published in the Proceedings of the Solvay
Testing Gravitational Self-interaction via Matter-Wave Interferometry
The Schr¨odinger–Newton equation has frequently been studied as a nonlinear modification of the Schr¨odinger equation incorporating gravitational self-interaction. However, there is no evidence yet as
Finite resource performance of small satellite-based quantum key distribution missions
In satellite-based quantum key distribution (QKD), the number of secret bits that can be generated in a single satellite pass over the ground station is severely restricted by the pass duration and

Recent developments in space technology like micro-propulsion systems for drag-free control, thermal shielding, ultra-stable laser sources and stable optical cavities set an ideal platform for
Experimental verification of the feasibility of a quantum channel between space and Earth
Extending quantum communication to space environments would enable us to perform fundamental experiments on quantum physics as well as applications of quantum information at planetary and
Probing Planck-scale physics with quantum optics
One of the main challenges in physics today is to merge quantum theory and the theory of general relativity into a unified framework. Researches are developing various approaches towards such a
Macroscopic quantum resonators (MAQRO)
The main scientific objective of MAQRO is to test the predictions of quantum theory for quantum superpositions of macroscopic objects containing more than 108 atoms, and to demonstrate the performance of a novel type of inertial sensor based on optically trapped microspheres.
Tabletop experiments for quantum gravity: a user’s manual
Recent advances in cooling, control, and measurement of mechanical systems in the quantum regime have opened the possibility of the first direct observation of quantum gravity, at scales achievable
The European Quantum Technologies Roadmap
An updated summary of the QT Roadmap is presented, including sections on Quantum Theory and Software, and on Quantum Control, as both are important areas of research that cut across all four domains.
Macroscopic Quantum Resonators (MAQRO): 2015 update
Do the laws of quantum physics still hold for macroscopic objects - this is at the heart of Schrödinger’s cat paradox - or do gravitation or yet unknown effects set a limit for massive particles?
Entanglement-based quantum communication over 144km
Quantum entanglement is the main resource to endow the field of quantum information processing with powers that exceed those of classical communication and computation. In view of applications such
The Environment, Decoherence and the Transition from Quantum to Classical
Quantum mechanics works exceedingly well in all practical applications. No example of conflict between its predictions and experiment is known. Without quantum physics we could not explain the
