PROGRAM

Cosmology Seminar - Anupam Mazumdar: "Colliding Schrödinger's kittens for testing Quantum Gravity"

Date:

Time:

15:00 hrs

Location:

Online

 

Abstract: 

Quantum gravity has never been tested in a laboratory. I will provide criteria for testing the quantum fluctuation of a graviton in a laboratory by colliding non-relativistically two Schrödinger’s kittens and study how the final states would be entangled in this process. Realising such an experiment will be filled with challenges, and I will motivate the community why doing such an experiment is necessary for our understanding of both the foundations of quantum mechanics and gravity.
