Realization of quantum experiments in space

The workshop will host the targeted discussion of experts in quantum experiments with optomechanics (levitated and cantilever), as well as matter-wave interferometry. It will also invite theoreticians working on experimental concepts for large-mass matterwave interferometry experiments.

Optomechanical route to macroscopic quantum superpositions

The aim of this workshop is to pin-point the suitability of levitated optomechanics as a test-bed for the investigation of the validity of quantum theory at the mesoscopic and macroscopic scale; identify the fundamental challenges of such tests and the it will address opportunities offered by a space-based configuration; compare the capabilities of levitated optomechanics to those of other platforms such as magneto-levitated one for the identification of the best-suited experimental platform.

Implementing Quantum Technologies in Space

Quantum technologies enable completely new possibilities in fields ranging from sensing to metrology and secure communication. Major efforts world wide aim for implementing quantum technologies for applications. These endeavors are driven by massive public and private investments. Of particular interest are quantum technologies in space where technology traditionally is at the forefront of research and development.
