"Probing gravity with macroscopic quantum states"

Freely falling particles are ideal test masses to study gravitational interactions. We use light pulse interferometry to study the propagation of ultra-cold atoms in free fall. So far quantum experiments have been carried out in locally flat space and can be summarized as testing the equivalence principle.

"Control and Local Measurement of the Spin Chemical Potential in a Magnetic Insulator"

In recent decades, a large scientific effort has focused on harnessing spin transport for providing insights into novel materials and low-dissipation information processing.
