Quantum Technology projects: a main pillar within the German space physical sciences program — •Thomas Driebe — DLR Space Administration, Bonn, Germany
As German Space Agency, the DLR Space Administration manages the German space program. This program integrates the German participation in the ESA programs and the activities in Germany's national program. As part of the space program, the German microgravity program is based on the provision of microgravity platforms, the development of flight hardware, and the preparation, execution, and analysis of both life and physical sciences experiments under space conditions.
The German Physical Sciences Program deals with gravity-dependent effects on physical and chemical processes and covers the research disciplines material sciences, fundamental physics, soft matter, fluid physics and combustion. The main program goal is to gain scientific knowledge by addressing fundamental questions in physics, to foster new technological developments and to reveal new application potentials from both fundamental as well as application-oriented research. Over the last two decades Quantum Physics and Quantum Technology projects have evolved into a main pillar of this programme.
In this talk, highlights of past and on-going Quantum Physics projects will be introduced along with the programmatic framework and priorities. In addition, opportunities and platforms for future research and technology development will be presented.
