Quantum dots are not dots
Researchers from the Quantum Photonics Group at DTU Fotonik in collaboration with the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen surprise the scientific world with the discovery that light emission from solid-state photon...
New accelerators to ensure cutting edge European research in nuclear physics
Europe is to get new particle accelerators and the current facilities at CERN, GSI and Ganil must be expanded and upgraded significantly over the next 10-15 years in order to continue to be leaders in nuclear research.
CERN observes melted nuclear matter for the first time
Scientists from the Niels Bohr Institute take part in the ATLAS experiment, where new results show, that the constituents of nuclei can melt. This shows how we think the world looked around a billionth of a second after...
Teachers from across the country flock to the Niels Bohr Institute
Niels Bohr Institute is hosting a big Theme Day, where high school and secondary school teachers can come and hear about the latest research. 250 teachers from across the country have chosen to travel.
CERN collides heavy ions at record energies
In the new experiments heavy lead ions are being smashed together with tremendous energy. Already with the first collisions the researchers can see exciting new phenomena with the ALICE detector, which Danish researchers from...
New ultra-clean nanowires have great potential
New ultra-clean nanowires produced at the Nano-Science Center, University of Copenhagen will have a central role in the development of new high-efficiency solar cells and electronics on a nanometer scale.
Quantum memory for communication networks of the future
Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have succeeded in storing quantum information using two 'entangled' light beams. Quantum memory is a necessary element of future quantum communication networks...
Wild 'teenage'-galaxies booming with star births
Scientists from the Niels Bohr Institute have been studying distant galaxies, which are among the most active star-forming galaxies in the Universe. They form around 1,000 new stars a year – a 1,000 times more than...
