Nuclear and Atomic Transitions as Laboratories for High Precision Tests of Quantum Gravity inspired Models

27 July 2021 — 29 July 2021

Recent developments of Quantum Gravity inspired models have produced a wealth of new predictions which are being tested in laboratories. In particular, many of these models foresee the non-commutativity of space-time coordinates, which, in turn, induces a deformation of the Lorentz symmetry and of the locality principle and naturally encodes the violation of the Pauli Exclusion Principle. These studies opened a new window of opportunities to test these models by performing high-precision measurements of atomic and nuclear transitions. Our workshop will hinge on the new profound implications of Quantum Gravity models on the nuclear and atomic physics observables and on the experimental constraints on effective quantum gravity models that arise from atomic and nuclear physics experiments. The Workshop will be opened to world-leading experts and young scientists who will explore several quantum gravity scenarios from complementary theoretical top-down and bottom-up approaches, to boost progress in this field.
