Terrestrial Very-Long-Baseline Atom Interferometry Workshop 13.–14. March 2023 CERN
The event will take stock of the developing international landscape of large-scale Atom Interferometer prototypes and discuss their synergies and complementarity. Such devices will be able to detect ultralight dark matter and gravitational waves in the mid-frequency band, complementing the capabilities of optical interferometers on Earth and the future LISA space mission, and offering unique sensitivity to ultralight bosonic dark matter.
The main goals of the workshop will be to develop a Roadmap for the design and technology choices for one or several km-scale atom interferometers to be ready for operation in the mid 2030s, which is supported by the cold atom community and the potential user communities interested in its science goals. This Roadmap will outline technological milestones as well as refine interim and long-term scientific goals.
