Workshop: Implementing Quantum Technologies in space
20 – 21 February 2018, Erlangen (DE)
Both large missions and small missions in space are being investigated and put forward. The workshop will provide for a platform to discuss the interplay between interesting experimental proposals and realistic implementation hurdles. The effective 2 day workshop should also kick-start concrete contacts between industry, applied research institutes and more fundamental groups in academia. The aim is to establish an ecosystem that enables industry and academia to develop and implement quantum technology in space.
Workshop: Optomechanical route to macroscopic quantum superpositions
22 – 23 March 2018, Bratislava (SK)
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. The workshop will run over one day and a half, putting together around 50 scientists interests in the theoretical (and also experimental) aspects of levitated and magneto- levitated optomechanics for a critical assessment of the current possibilities that these platforms offer for the investigation of macroscopic quantum effects.
