Atom interferometry is an exciting new technology employing quantum sensors to make precision measurements in key tests of fundamental physics. Upcoming terrestrial long-baseline experiments such as AION and MAGIS will access new parameter spaces in searches for dark matter and gravitational waves, including sensitivity to the mid-band frequency range between LIGO and LISA. The talk will give a very brief overview of the physical principles behind atom interferometry and how it can be used to probe ultra-light dark matter.
