Quantum mechanics provides, to date, the most accurate understanding of the microscopic world of atoms, molecules and photons allowing them to be in the superposition of two different, perfectly distinguishable configurations at the same time. However, the macroscopic world that is before our very own eyes doesn’t seem to respect quantum rules. Why is that so?
TEQ addresses such a fundamental quest from an innovative standpoint, supported by a € 4.4M grant awarded by the European Commission. The TEQ partners will develop new theoretical models and implement a test of the quantum superposition principle on macroscopic objects to establish the ultimate bounds to the validity of the quantum framework, if any.
