In the context of future space-based experiments using macrosopic quantum systems for testing the foundations of quantum physics, this focus session is dedicated to the state of the art in ground-based experiments, potential future experiments and the case for space of those efforts. We will have four leading scientists to
ESRIN, the ESA Centre for Earth Observation, is organising a Φ-week event focusing on EO Open Science and FutureEO. It will host a mini workshop organized in collaboration with QTSpace, on quantum computing for EO.
ESTEC, the European Space Research and Technology Centre of ESA, will host the 3rd workshop on “Quantum Technology – Implementations for Space” in November 2018. The workshop is organised in collaboration with QTSpace.
The conference will cover a wide range of topics related to the transmission of quantum and classical light in space, bring together those various communities and identify overlaps not only from a technological side but also from a theoretical perspective.
QTSpace has been invited to coordinate the session on Quantum Technologies in Space, whose goal is to define the priorities in the field, in view of FP9. The expected output is a strategic report addressed to the EC, to be used for the definition of FP9.
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.
