Workshop: Fundamental Quantum Physics and Applications in Space

Date: 
Monday, March 30, 2020 to Friday, April 3, 2020
Place: 
Budapest

The whorkshop is targeted to the quantum physics community with an emphasis on experiments or missions with a necessity of a space environment or microgravity. The scientific talks will include topics such as atom optics, optical frequency references, opto-mechanics, matter wave interferometry and quantum entanglement. Each of these fields of research can benefit from a microgravity environment, as achieved in Earth-based microgravity platforms like drop towers, parabolic flights or sounding rockets or from a space environment, which offers additional benefits, such as improved microgravity conditions, increased times of undisturbed flight, unperturbed long range measurements or high relative velocities.
