CARIOQA-PMP has been approved by the EU

Our research proposal “Cold Atom Rubidium Interferometer in Orbit for Quantum Accelerometry – Pathfinder Mission Preparation” (CARIOQA-PMP) has been approve by the EU!

The objective of the CARIOQA-PMP project is to enable Europe to deploy quantum gravimeters/accelerometers in space through a Quantum Pathfinder Mission within the decade.

The future CARIOQA of the EU is to map earth’s gravity field using

Atomtronics is an emerging field that aims to manipulate ultracold atom moving in matter wave circuits for both fundamental studies in quantum science and technological applications. In this colloquium, we review recent progress in matter-wave circuitry and atomtronics-based quantum technology. After a short introduction to the basic physical principles and the key experimental techniques needed to realize atomtronic systems, we describe the physics of matter-waves in simple circuits such as ring traps and two-terminal systems. The main experimental observations and outstanding questions are discussed. We also present possible applications to a broad range of quantum technologies, from quantum sensing with atom interferometry to future quantum simulation and quantum computation architectures.
