Progress in testing fundamental physics relies on our ability to measure exceedingly small physical quantities. Using a $^{40}$Ca$^{+}$ trapped ion system as an example we show that an exceedingly weak synthetic magnetic field (at the scale of $10^{-19}$ T) can be measured with current technology. This improved sensitivity can be used to test the effects of spin coupling that affect the equivalence principle and, if present, may impact the performance of the proposed entangled optical clocks…

Theory and Experiment in Gravitational Physics

New technological advances have made it feasible to conduct measurements with precision levels which are suitable for experimental tests of the theory of general relativity. This book has been

Quantum Fields in Curved Space

This book presents a comprehensive review of the subject of gravitational effects in quantum field theory. Although the treatment is general, special emphasis is given to the Hawking black hole

Quantum measurements and quantum metrology

We review the physics of hybrid optomechanical systems consisting of a mechanical oscillator interacting with both a radiation mode and an additional matterlike system. We concentrate on the cases
