This study will assess how recent advances in the field of quantum metrology and for squeezed light interferometry could be appliedto improve the estimation of parameters in space-based gravitational physics experiments.Based on first analysis, this could be thecase for example for the application of multiple-phase estimation for a space-based gravitational wave detector, such as the evolved Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (eLISA) or the use of light ring gyroscopes for frame dragging experiments similar to Gravity Probe. Universities are encouraged to propose other more suitable or equivalent examples to demonstrate potential improvements of using quantum metrology for space-based experiments.
