The existence of scalar field has been predicted by a number of important areas in physics: The Higgs scalar field is required to generate mass in the standard model; Scalar field is assumed to be responsible for Inflation and dark energy in cosmology; Unified theory such as the string theory leads to scalar-tensor theory of gravity at low energy. If the equivalence principle holds then scalar field should be incorporated into gravity. However, there has been no direct experimental evidence of scalar field. In this talk, we shall discuss the prospects of detecting scalar gravitational field by observing its decoherence effect on massive quantum systems, such as coherence molecule beams or entangled cold atoms.
