News on Quantum physics in 2016
The Sound of Quantum Vacuum
21 December 2016
Quantum mechanics dictates sensitivity limits in the measurements of displacement, velocity and acceleration. A recent experiment at NBI probes these limits, analyzing how quantum fluctuations set a sensor membrane
University of Copenhagen partners with Microsoft to develop topological quantum computer
28 November 2016
Professor Charles Marcus will build the world's first topological quantum computer at the Niels Bohr Institute in collaboration with the Technical University of Delft and Sydney University under a Microsoft...
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.
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.
Quantum photonic researchers start new company, Sparrow Quantum
27 May 2016
Researchers in the research group Quantum Photonics at the Niels Bohr Institute have formed a new company, Sparrow Quantum, which will produce photonic chips that could be used for quantum technology based on light.
Superfast light source made from artificial atom
26 April 2016
New research results from the Niels Bohr Institute show that light sources can be made much faster by using a principle that was predicted theoretically in 1954. Superfast light sources can be used, for example, in laser lights, LED...
Massive investment: From theoretical quantum physics to usable quantum technology
07 April 2016
In a major new effort to translate quantum physics into practical quantum technology, the Innovation Fund Denmark has therefore invested 80 million kroner in a nationwide project involving three universities.
Protected Majorana states for quantum information
09 March 2016
Quantum technology has the potential to revolutionize computation, cryptography, and simulation of quantum systems. However: quantum states are fragile, and so must be controlled without being measured.
