Quantum gravity in the lab: the perspective of a quantum gravity theorist
Unlike most quantum-gravity experiments in the lab previously considered, the perspective of observing Gravity Mediated Entanglement (GME) is of great interest from the perspective of a quantum gravity theorist, in spite of its non-relativistic character. I illustrate why. I give a straightforward generally relativistic interpretation of the GME. I discuss the (very long shoot) possibility of observing genuinely relativistic quantum gravitational effects with the same technique. I give a simple overview of where we stand in quantum gravity, both theoretically and empirically.
