Quantum networks: Back and forth are not equal distances!

27 July 2015

Quantum networks: Back and forth are not equal distances! Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have discovered a new type of photonic channels, where back and forth are not equal distances! Such a system has been a missing component for building quantum photonic circuits on a large

Super-bright supernova with extreme burst of gamma radiation

08 July 2015

Super-bright supernova with extreme burst of gamma radiation Astronomers from NBI have observed a super-bright supernova association with a very unusual long lasting gamma-ray burst. Gamma-ray bursts are in rare cases observed in connection with supernovae, which are the

Volcanic eruptions are important for world climate

08 July 2015

Volcanic eruptions are important for world climate Large volcanic eruptions release huge clouds of ash and acid into the atmosphere. These clouds spread across the globe and block out the Sun, resulting in a colder climate for decades afterwards. Climate researchers have known

Nanowires could be the LEDs of the future

24 June 2015

Nanowires could be the LEDs of the future The latest research from the Niels Bohr Institute shows that LEDs made from nanowires will use less energy and provide better light. The researchers studied nanowires using X-ray microscopy and with this method they can pinpoint exactly...

Risk of major sea level rise in Northern Europe

18 June 2015

Risk of major sea level rise in Northern EuropeGlobal warming leads to the ice sheets on land melting and flowing into the sea, which consequently rises. New calculations by researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute show that the sea level in Northern Europe may rise more than

Detector at the South Pole explores the mysterious neutrinos

16 April 2015

The Earth is constantly bombarded by billions of neutrinos, which zip right through the entire globe. The giant IceCube experiment at the South Pole can detect when there is a collision between neutrinos and atoms in the ice.
