Quantum Seismology

We will explore a quantum mechanical method of detecting weak vibrational disturbances inspired by the protocol of entanglement farming, which is itself inspired in the harvesting of entanglement from the vacuum state of a quantum field. This setup consists of inherently non-relativistic quantum optics elements, where small relativistic effects (which are usually neglected) build up to give a non-negligible effect over long times. We will comment on the sensitivity of the setup and its prospects to be used in different fields from seismology to gravitational wave detection.

Date: Thursday, December 18th 2014.
Time: 15:00.
Venue: 
CFMAC Conference Hall @ 121 Serrano St. (28006 Madrid).
