Can I see Quantum Gravity?

Project description

Tweaks in effective field theory could help find evidence for quantum gravity

The question of how gravity and quantum mechanics fit together has been a long-standing problem in physics. Determining how quantum fluctuations affect gravitational waves is a crucial step in this quest. To describe observable quantum gravity effects, it is essential to modify the standard framework of effective field theory. The EU-funded CanISeeQG project aims to describe this modification in a precise and quantitative way, ultimately connecting it to potential experimental discoveries. To this end, the project will combine research in thermodynamics, hydrodynamics and quantum information theory.
