Studies agree on a 1 meter rise in sea levels
New research from several international research groups, including the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen provides independent consensus that IPCC predictions of less than a half a meter rise in sea levels is...
Record measurement of extremely small magnetic fields
Researchers at the research center QUANTOP at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen have constructed an atomic magnetometer, which has achieved the highest sensitivity allowed by quantum mechanics.
Launch: New Danish center for space research
With the aim of strengthening Danish space research, several institutes at the University of Copenhagen have formed a new interdisciplinary center, the Space Science Center. With the new center, we focus more on the...
Big Bang a spectacular success
The auditorium is packed with visitors, journalists and researchers, who are following the live broadcasts from the research centre CERN in Switzerland. Will they succeed in carrying out the first collisions at...
Astronomers observe growing black holes
The most distant quasars found in the early universe, a mere 800 million years after the Big Bang, have been observed by an international team of astronomers including members from the Niels Bohr Institute...
Rumblings about CERN is empty talk
’Hadron Collider to be closed amid fears of a very big bang’ read the headline in a major English newspaper and sparked controversy over the future of CERN. Was there a future for the large European research centre?
New light shed on old dispute between Einstein and Bohr
In classical physics there are no uncertainties – the properties of matter on an atomic level are deterministic, that is to say predetermined. The theories of quantum mechanics, however, only say something about how...
