Astrophysicists are thrilled about finding a source from where the cosmic ‘ghost particles’ originate

13 July 2018

A magnificent research project located under the ice of the South Pole has found a connection between emission of the mysterious neutrinos and the active galaxies, blazars. One of the involved scientists at the University of Copenhagen tells that it is an important piece in understanding cosmic rays

Neutron scattering brings us a step closer to the quantum computer

29 March 2018

A major challenge for future quantum computers is that you have to keep the quantum information long enough to make calculations on it – but the information only has a very short lifespan, often less than a microsecond.
