Research Projects of the Quantum Sensing Group

QUANTUM TEST OF THE EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE

Within this project, we perform tests of the Einstein Equivalence Principle by means of matter wave interferometry.

SENSOR FUSION

Here we investigate methods for sensor fusion between matter wave interferometers and broadband motion sensors.

VLBAI - VERY LONG BASELINE ATOM INTERFEROMETRY

The Very Long Baseline Atom Interferometry test stand is a world-wide unique infrastructure, which will take atom interferometry to the next level.

GRAVIMETRY WITH QUANTUM OBJECTS

LARGE MOMENTUM BEAM SPLITTING

CHIP-SCALE SENSORS. CONCEPTS FOR MINIATURIZING WITHOUT PERFORMANCE LOSS

TESTING AI CONCEPTS IN MICROGRAVITY

SPACE ATOM OPTICS

This project develops, tests, and utilises atom optics and atom interferometry in space.

THEORY OF QUANTUM SENSORS

GRAVITATIONAL WAVE DETECTION WITH ATOM INTERFEROMETERS

This project studies the requirements, experimental solutions, and benefits of atom interferometers for the detection of gravitational waves.

SPACE-BORNE QUANTUM SENSORS FOR GEODETIC APPLICATIONS

This project focuses on the development of atom interferometers for applications as gravity gradiometers and accelerometers on satellites.

ENHANCING ATOM INTERFEROMETY BY ENTANGLEMENT

This project investigates possible enhancements by and the experimental implementation of entanglement in inertially sensitive atom interferometers.

OPTICAL FREQUENCY STANDARD

Here we investigate and develop an optical frequency standard based on bosonic magnesium atoms, trapped in an optical lattice.
