Phase shift in atom interferometry due to spacetime curvature

13 Oct 2016 Asenbaum Peter Overstreet Chris Kovachy Tim Brown Daniel D. Hogan Jason M. Kasevich Mark A.

We present a single-source dual atom interferometer and utilize it as a gradiometer for precise gravitational measurements. The macroscopic separation between interfering atomic wave packets (as large as 16 cm) reveals the interplay of recoil effects and gravitational curvature from a nearby Pb source mass... (read more)
