Exploring the Foundations of the Universe with Space Tests of the Equivalence Principle


Battelier, Baptiste; Berger, Joël; Bertoldi, Andrea; et al; Jetzer, Philippe (2019). Exploring the Foundations of the Universe with Space Tests of the Equivalence Principle. arXiv.org 1908.11785, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We present the scientific motivation for future space tests of the equivalence principle, and in particular the universality of free fall, at the 10−17 level or better. Two possible mission scenarios, one based on quantum technologies, the other on electrostatic accelerometers, that could reach that goal are briefly discussed.
