SFB 1128: Relativistic Geodesy and Gravimetry with Quantum Sensors (geo-Q)
The SFB 1128 "Relativistic Geodesy and Gravimetry with Quantum Sensors" is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
The first funding period of the SFB will extend from Oct 1, 2014 to June 30, 2018. In this period, geo-Q consists of 21 projects at 5 participating institutes that are led by 22 principal investigators. geo-Q is located at Leibniz Universität Hannover and collaborates with ZARM Bremen and PTB Braunschweig.
The aim of geo-Q
The aim of geo-Q is to explore new frontiers of the determination of the Earth’s gravitational field and of monitoring the global and regional mass redistribution. geo-Q will advance on one hand the quantum metrology, and on the other the geodetic modeling to achieve the major step in accuracy that will enable scientific users to detect and reliably interpret processes of global and regional change.
