Underground tests of Quantum Mechanics: Gravity-related and CSL wave function collapse models

Catalina Curceanu Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN)

We are experimentally investigating possible departures from the standard quantum mechanics’  predictions at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory in Italy. In particular, with radiation detectors we are searching signals predicted by the collapse models (spontaneous emission of radiation) which were proposed to solve the “measurement problem” in quantum physics and signals coming from a possible violation of the Pauli Exclusion Principle.
