Pedalino, Sebastian — High-mass matter-wave interferometry

Vienna’s Long-Baseline Universal Matter-wave Interferometer (LUMI) has successfully demonstrated interference of massive molecules consisting of up to 2000 atoms and with masses up to 28.000 amu. LUMI’s high force sensitivity of 10-26 N has also been used to sense electronic, optical, magnetic and structural properties of a very diverse class of particles. I will discuss new experiments with atoms, complex molecules and future prospects for high- mass metal clusters with improved precision over previous devices.
