    Abstract

    Deployment of quantum technology in space provides opportunities for new types of precision tests of gravity. On the other hand, the operational demands of such technology can make previously unimportant effects practically relevant. We describe a novel optical interferometric red-shift measurement and a measurement scheme designed to witness possible spin-gravity coupling effects.
