The GEO600 detector is operated in a collaboration of AEI, Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics (Garching), Leibniz Universität Hannover, Laser Zentrum Hannover, University of Glasgow, and Cardiff University.
LISA technology is now being used for Earth observation and will improve future satellite geodesy missions. GRACE FO will observe indicators of climate change through changes in Earth's gravitational field.
The aim of geo-Q is to explore new frontiers of the determination of the Earth’s gravitational field and of monitoring the global and regional mass redistribution. geo-Q will advance on one hand the quantum metrology, and on the other the geodetic modeling to achieve the major step in accuracy that will enable scientific users to detect and reliably interpret processes of global and regional change.[more]
In accordance with the Leibniz University's strategy for the future, the QUEST-Leibniz-Forschungsschule has been established as the first of its kind. The research school is an orthogonal structure to the existing departments and covers very similar topics as the Cluster of Excellence QUEST.
RTG 1991 "quantum mechanical noise in complex systems" is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and explores in an interdisciplinary collaboration the intrinsic quantum mechanical noise in fundamental physical systems.[more]
