Recent advances in methods to coherently manipulate atomic de Broglie waves have enabled a new generation of atom interferometers with unique capability to address outstanding fundamental science challenges. These challenges include detection of gravitational radiation at frequencies below 1 Hz, searches for ultralight dark matter, and new tests of gravitational physics. This talk will describe recent progress in this field and outline future scientific opportunities.
This is special Colloquium part of the “Terrestrial Very-Long-Baseline Atom Interferometry Workshop” (13-14 March 2023) with a short introduction to the Workshop at 08:45.
The Colloquium is officially starting at 09:15.
