Optical magnetic field sensor can detect signals from the nervous system
15 July 2016
The human body is controlled by electrical impulses in, for example, the brain, the heart and nervous system. These electrical signals create tiny magnetic fields, which can be used to diagnose various diseases.
Bacteria avoid age defects through collective behaviour
14 July 2016
As they age, more and more defects arise in most organisms. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have discovered that microorganisms like bacteria can keep a colony young by practicing a common strategy...
Warning from the past: Future global warming could be even warmer
27 June 2016
Future global warming will not only depend on the amount of emissions from man-made greenhouse gasses, but will also depend on the sensitivity of the climate system and response to feedback mechanisms.

Quantum photonic researchers start new company, Sparrow Quantum
27 May 2016
Researchers in the research group Quantum Photonics at the Niels Bohr Institute have formed a new company, Sparrow Quantum, which will produce photonic chips that could be used for quantum technology based on light.
Star with different internal driving force than the Sun
04 May 2016
Astrophysicists from the Niels Bohr Institute have observed a distant star in the constellation Andromeda with a different positioning of sunspots and this indicates a magnetic field that is driven by completely different
Insulating layer of air above the Greenland ice sheet reduces precipitation
29 April 2016
The Earth’s climate has been warming, but even though the Greenland ice sheet is melting rapidly in the coastal regions, there are large parts of the ice sheet where there has hardly been any melting on the surface.
Superfast light source made from artificial atom
26 April 2016
New research results from the Niels Bohr Institute show that light sources can be made much faster by using a principle that was predicted theoretically in 1954. Superfast light sources can be used, for example, in laser lights, LED...
Unique opportunity for Danish companies in the competition to develop materials of the future
13 April 2016
An agreement has just been finalized on Danish co-financing of the coming X-ray facility in Lund, Sweden - MAX IV. The agreement gives Danish companies and researchers direct access to use some of the world’s
Massive investment: From theoretical quantum physics to usable quantum technology
07 April 2016
In a major new effort to translate quantum physics into practical quantum technology, the Innovation Fund Denmark has therefore invested 80 million kroner in a nationwide project involving three universities.
