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. Precision tests of the equivalence principle do not only test the geometrical nature of gravity but also serve as extraordinarily sensitive probes for new, ultra-weak interactions. Our current efforts focus on a test of the weak equivalence principle at the 10-13 level with two rubidium isotopes. We suppress gravity gradient systematic errors to below one part in 1013 and demonstrate a relative precision of Δg/g≈3×10−11 per shot, which improves the state of the art the best previous result for a dual-species atom interferometer by more than three orders of magnitude .
With the help of the large momentum transfer techniques  we can now create macroscopic quantum states on the order of tens of cm. The large spatial extent allows us to go beyond the equivalence principle and observe genuine gravity effects in a quantum system .
