Workshop: Realization of quantum experiments in space

10 - 11 April 2018, Vienna (AT)

QTSpace will run the 2-day workshop "Realization of quantum experiments in space" on 10-11 April 2018 in Vienna. After the successful event at Bratislava which discussed the relevance of space for optomechanics based test of quantum mechanics, we will discuss the state of play in optomechanics technology for a possible realisation of interferometric or non-interferometric experiments in space. If you are interested to participate in such a discussion, please get in contact with Hendrik Ulbricht at h.ulbricht@soton.ac.uk. A few places are still available. See here for more details on the event: http://maqro-mission.org/events/realization-of-quantum-experiments-in-space/
