Extreme research in ultra-cold atoms and the riddles of the universe
See the scientists' experiments with superconductors and atomic clocks. Follow the researchers to CERN in the search of answers to the riddles of the universe. What did the universe consist of in the first milliseconds after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago?

Jesper Nygård: Nanoelectronics - from artificial atoms to the computers of the future

07 February 2014

Jesper Nygård: Nanoelectronics - from artificial atoms to the computers of the future As electronics keep getting smaller and smaller, what will happen when a transistor is the size of an atom? Will a computer chip still work? Will the strange laws of quantum physics impose limits on computers or...
