[1102.4362] Equivalence Principle and Gravitational Redshift

Authors: Michael A. Hohensee, Steven Chu, Achim Peters, Holger Mueller

Abstract: We investigate leading order deviations from general relativity that violate the Einstein equivalence principle (EEP) in the gravitational standard model extension (SME). We show that redshift experiments based on matter waves and clock comparisons are equivalent to one another. Consideration of torsion balance tests, along with matter wave, microwave, optical, and M\"ossbauer clock tests yields comprehensive limits on spin-independent EEP-violating SME terms at the $10ˆ{-6}$ level.
