Composite quantum systems at the interplay with general relativity (2018–2021)

The notion of time is not fully understood in physics, yet it is among the most precisely measurable quantities. This project aims to develop an operational framework for time and causality at a quantum and gravity interface, testable with nascent quantum technologies. The project expects to deliver new knowledge in the foundations of quantum physics by developing mathematical tools relevant beyond the context of gravity. Expected outcomes include enhanced understanding of the notions of time and causality in quantum physics, and formulation of new experimental paradigms to test them. Due to high interest in these topics among the scientists and the public, the project can culturally benefit the society and be valuable in science outreach.
