Fundamental loss of quantum coherence from quantum gravity
We discuss the fundamental loss of unitarity that appears in quantum mechanics when one uses physically realistic devices to measure time and space. The effect is independent of any interaction with the environment and appears in addition to any usual environmental decoherence. We discuss the conceptual and potential experimental implications of this process of decoherence.
