Our essay has won the first prize of the Gravity Research Foundation 2019 “Essays on Gravitation” contest.


In this work we demonstrate cavity cooling by coherent scattering, a new paradigm of cavity cooling for levitated optomechanics. Genuine...


We argue that the (linearized) gravitational field of a massive object in a quantum superposition has to exhibit genuine quantum features. More...
