Numerous ideas have been floated in the past decade or two to test possible signatures of quantum behaviour in gravity in realistic experiments. I will give a high-level overview of this growing program. The main goal will be to bring clarity as to what exactly is being tested in each case, particularly with respect to predictions of perturbative gravity treated as a standard effective quantum field theory. Proposals covered will include tabletop experiments for coherence and entanglement in the Newton interaction, measurements of quantization effects in the gravitational radiation field, quantization effects in the cosmic microwave background, and “holographic noise” searches.
