21 May 2018 Testing gravity with atomic quantum sensors on ground and in space
Author Affiliations +
In this article, we illustrate a series of experiments performed in our group in the field of atom interferometry for precision gravity measurements. We show that instruments measuring and testing gravity can be built both with rubidium and with strontium atoms, while keeping the sources of systematic error under control. The application of these devices in the test of the Weak Equivalence Principle with quantum objects, in the measurement of the Newtonian gravitational constant G and in the development of a new type atom interferometer for the detection of gravitational waves is discussed.
