LEvitated MAgnets for QUantum MEtrology

The project is a collaboration of research groups from Italy, Germany, Israel, France, Latvia, US ands UK and is devoted to the exploration of levitated magnets as quantum sensors, with the ultimate goal of performing tests of fundamental laws of physics.

We will perform experiments using different and complementary platforms such as superconducting traps at low temperature, circuit traps and Paul traps. In addition, some of our experiments are planned at the Einstein-Elevator, a unique facility that allows repeated zero-gravity experiments without using “Vomit Comet” aircraft or spacecraft.
