Witnessing Quantum Aspects of Gravity in a Laboratory

- This workshop will be rescheduled -

5 - 9 October 2020

Venue: Lorentz Center@Snellius

Is gravity classical or quantum? It has been long debated in the community whether the two masses interact via a classical or a quantum graviton, a carrier of the gravitational interaction. Gravity is perhaps the only known interactions of nature whose quantum aspects have not been proven in any experiment so far. This workshop will aim to create a protocol to test quantum gravity in a table-top experiment and study the experimental feasibility to witness gravity's Cheshire cat with the help of techniques used in quantum information and quantum technology.
