AION Days in Oxford

The AION collaboration held its first in-person meeting between the 8th and 10th of November at the University of Oxford. The packed agenda covered the status and plans of all our activities: the technology developments for ultra-cold atom interferometry; the engineering for the 10m AION-10 pathfinder and installation in the Beecroft building of the Oxford physics department; future long baseline atom interferometry; the MAGIS-100 experiment and network with AION; and the broad physics programme. We also heard the latest status and developments of MAGIS-100 from Jason Hogan (Stanford University) and welcomed members of our Quantum Technologies for Fundamental Physics programme Oversight Committee for their first meeting.

A big thank you to the Oxford AION group, St Catherines College and Prof. Ian Shipsey for hosting the meeting!
