From Quantum to KOSMOS - Optical Quantum Technologies for Small Satellites

3-day KOSMOS Workshop

Dates: 12. - 14. September 2018 (Wednesday to Friday)

Place: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Institut für Physik, Campus Adlershof, Germany

Optical quantum technologies are key components for space-based tests of Einstein's theory of relativity and other experiments related to the unification quantum physics and gravity. Qualification of optical quantum technologies in orbit, e.g. on small satellites, is essential for the realization of such complex experiments. The technological requirements in combination with the limited resources onboard a small satellite demand interdisciplinary strategies, with inputs from physics and engineering.

The 3-day KOSMOS Workshop "From Quantum to KOSMOS" includes talks and subsequent working groups on cutting-edge research in the field of optical quantum technology for space applications. It aims at addressing scientific and technical as well as strategic questions. Four main topics form the context of the workshop: Applications of OQT on small satellites, demonstration of OQT, technology development and OQT industry, and small satellite platforms. We aim to discuss the current status of technology readiness, miniaturization and qualification methods, novel space platforms and launch options, and a roadmap as to how industry and research institutes can propel the OQT development process.
