Recently, quantum-clock interferometry [1] has been suggested to investigate relativistic effects on the center-of-mass motion in superpositions of internal states. These proposals combine high-precision quantum metrological techniques with studies of the fundamental interconnections between relativity and quantum mechanics. Complementary to tests of relativity with atomic clocks, quantum-clock interferometry allows one to test these effects with a single but delocalized quantum object. However, the sensitivity with respect to relativistic effects [1,2] depends crucially on the geometry and the specific details of the involved beamsplitting processes. In our contribution we investigate, elaborate and clarify the link between typical beamsplitters used in the proposed schemes and the sensitivity to relativistic effects.
