New ’building material’ points toward quantum computers
02 October 2017
A Danish-American research team has shown that it is possible to produce ‘Majorana particles’ in a new ‘building material’. The research, led by scientists from Niels Bohr institute, paves the road for new types of experiments.
Smart atomic cloud solves Heisenberg's observation problem
13 July 2017
One of the most fundamental principles of physics, "Quantum Back Action", has been challenged by researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute, which has used laser light to link a vibrating membrane with cesium atoms.
Iron secrets behind superconductors unlocked
07 July 2017
Due to magnetism iron should - theoretically - be a poor superconductor. Nevertheless certain ironbased materials possess fine superconducting properties. Why? Because the five unbound electrons found in iron...
