Paper Abstract

Optically levitated masses can provide extremely sensitive force sensors that are decoupled both thermally and electrically from their environment. Due to these features, they provide ideal sensors for a number of searches for new fundamental interactions, which may appear as tiny deviations in the forces acting on massive or charged objects. These forces are motivated by a number of models of new physics beyond the Standard Model, allowing tests of certain models accounting for dark matter, dark energy, or the microscopic properties of gravity in a table-top scale experiment.
