Title:     Cold Atoms in Microgravity - The advantage of Free Fall for Fundamental Physics

 

Abstract:   The first part of the talk is about the microgravity environment. We are discussing reasons for doing experiments in space and in microgravity. The corresponding discussion is about the science case, the benefit from microgravity, and the technological challenges. After this more general discussion, the second talk describes microgravity experiments with cold atoms carried through in the drop tower Bremen, in sounding rockets and also experiments planned for the ISS.
