    Florian Steininger (Vienna):  Hong-Ou-Mandel intereference: a primer

Abstract: This talk is intended to give a comprehensive primer on Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) Interference, which is a quantum mechanical effect useful in quantifying indistinguishability of photons. In particular, it can be employed to measure the decoherence generated in a system (i.e. the interaction with its surroundings). This enables a setup which can encode general relativistic effects into quantum-interference experiments, potentially leading to an observation of quantized electromagnetic fields in the context of general relativity.
