Niels Bohr Lectures

Niels Bohr Lectures og Niels Bohr Kollokvier er engelsksprogede foredragsrækker med nogle af verdens førende forskere inden for deres felt. Fra udlandet kommer de helt store kanoner og fortæller om den forskning, de er blevet verdenskendt for, og fremtrædende danske forskere fortæller om deres nyeste videnskabelige resultater og gennembrud.

    Niels Bohr Lecture by prof. Francis Halzen

    The IceCube project has transformed a cubic kilometer of natural Antarctic ice into a neutrino detector. The instrument detects more than 100,000 neutrinos per year in the GeV to PeV energy range. Among those, we have isolated a flux of high-energy neutrinos of cosmic origin with an energy density similar to that of high energy photons and cosmic rays in the extreme universe.

    Nobel lecture at by Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland

    One half of this year’s Nobel prize in physics was awarded to Profs. Donna Strickland and Gérard Mourou for their method of generating high-intensity, ultra-short optical pulses. In this last Niels Bohr Lecture of 2018 they will give back-to-back lectures about the work leading to their discovery.
