Spectroscopic methods allow to measure energy differences with unrivaled precision. In the case of gravity resonance spectroscopy, energy differences of different gravitational states are measured without recourse to the electromagnetic interaction. This provides a very pure and background-free look at gravitation and topics related to the central problem of dark energy and dark matter at short distances. In this article, we analyse the effect of dark energy scalar symmetron fields, a leading candidate for a screened dark energy field, and place limits in a large volume of parameter space.
