Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have now developed the first building blocks needed to construct complex quantum photonic circuits for quantum networks. This rapid development in quantum networks
Newly discovered mechanism in cells can regulate the immune system
21 December 2016
Special proteins are important for the function of cells and play an important role in processes and effectiveness of the immune system. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have observed how concentrations
The Sound of Quantum Vacuum
21 December 2016
Quantum mechanics dictates sensitivity limits in the measurements of displacement, velocity and acceleration. A recent experiment at NBI probes these limits, analyzing how quantum fluctuations set a sensor membrane
Scientific ‘facts’ could be false
20 December 2016
When is a scientific result true or false? Experiments always have a certain proportion of positive results and negative results, but scientific journals prefer to publish the positive results and new research from the Niels Bohr Institute...
