CTAMOP member to tackle quantum research in space

Last updated June 7, 2017 by Andrew Brown

Cost ActionsCTAMOP member and Director of research Mauro Paternostro is one of the main proponents of the successful COST Action proposal “Quantum Technology in Space (QTSpace)”.

The Action, which aims at investigating the possibility of testing the pillars of quantum mechanics in space-based experiments, towards the assessment of both gravity-induced time dilation and gravity-induced quantum correlations, is the first coordinated initiative bringing together quantum mechanics and space-based research.

Paternostro will act as Vice-Chair of the Action, which already includes researchers from 21 European countries and will be active for 4 years. The Action will have a budget of about 0.5M Euros.


We are a Research Cluster of the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland. Our research interests are focused primarily on computational and theoretical physics.
