Description

The possibility of testing Gravitomagnetism effects in a terrestrial laboratory has been explored in recent years. In particular, the GINGER (Gyroscopes In General Relativity) experiment relies on the use of light for testing Gravitomagnetism and, more in general, post-Newtonian effects, in a terrestrial laboratory by means of an array of ring lasers (a ring laser is a rotation sensor based on the Sagnac effect, that is the shift of the interference pattern arising when an interferometer is set into rotation, with respect to what is observed when the device is at rest). In this framework, I will review the behaviour of a quantum system in a gravitational field, and the possibility to test modified gravity and Lorentz invariance violation.
