Abstract

Gravitationally bound quantum states of matter were observed recently due to unique properties of ultracold neutrons. We discuss here the actual status and possible improvements in this experiment. This phenomenon could be useful for various domains ranging from the physics of elementary particles and fields, to surface studies, or to foundations of quantum mechanics.
