New Article on Geodesy and Quantum Mechanics

Current developments in quantum physics and the application of general relativity will open up enhanced prospects for satellite geodesy, gravimetric Earth observation and reference systems. The new IAG Project – Novel Sensors and Quantum Technology for Geodesy (QuGe) was established to exploit the high potential of quantum technology and novel measurement concepts for various innovative applications in geodesy.

Recently in December 2021 an article was published (bin the EOS magazine to dive into this interesting scientific part. It is definitely worth reading …

Lasers and Ultracold Atoms for a Changing Earth

Applying new technology rooted in quantum mechanics and relativity to terrestrial and space geodesy will sharpen our understanding of how the planet responds to natural and human-induced changes.
