Title Tests of quantum mechanics and gravitation with atom interferometry
Abstract Recent de Broglie wave interference experiments with atoms have achieved wavepacket separations as large as 54 cm over time intervals of 2 sec [1, 2]. These experiments, and their impact on gravitational and quantum physics, will be discussed. [1] Kovachy, T. et al. Quantum superposition at the half-metre scale.
