Gravitationally Induced Decoherence

We are investigating the role that gravity plays as an environment in causing the rapid decoherence of matter superposition states. Our approach is based on the viewpoint that the standard perturbative quantization of general relativity provides an effective description of quantum gravity that is valid at ordinary energies.
