Tracking the amount of sea ice from the Greenland ice sheet
27 September 2016
By analysing ice cores drilled from deep inside the Greenland ice sheet, researchers have started to calculate how much Arctic sea ice there was in the past. The results have just published in the research journal Scientific
Effective reflection of light for quantum technology
23 September 2016
Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute have developed a new method where they create a very strong interaction between light and atoms, which means that the light can be controlled and reflected on a glass fiber.
First step in the Deep Space mission
21 September 2016
Deep Space is a project that will use a new specially designed telescope to look far into space in order to observe radiation from the early universe. The equipment will be placed at Summit in the middle of the...
Acidity in atmosphere minimised to preindustrial levels
19 September 2016
New research shows that human pollution of the atmosphere with acid is now almost back to the level that it was before the pollution started with industrialisation in the 1930s. The results come from studies of the Greenland

The long hunted sterile neutrino cannot be traced
08 August 2016
Some of the most abundant particles in the universe are the so-called ghost particles, neutrinos, which travel through virtually anything on their journey through the universe. Researchers have identified three types of...
Gentle cancer treatment using nanoparticles works
02 August 2016
Cancer treatments based on laser irridation of tiny nanoparticles that are injected directly into the cancer tumor are working and can destroy the cancer from within. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute and the Faculty
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...
