Latest Atomic physics Stories
A class of molecules 100 – 1,000 times more energetic than typical has been discovered by Dr. Young K. Bae, a physicist at Y.K.
NASA Cold Atom Lab Creates Ultracold Atoms Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) October 02, 2014 Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) recently announced that it has
By combining advanced mathematics with high-performance computing, scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Indiana University (IU) have developed a tool that allowed them to calculate a fundamental property of most atoms on the periodic table to historic accuracy—reducing error by a factor of a thousand in many cases.
From allowing our eyes to see, to enabling green plants to harvest energy from the sun, photochemical reactions – reactions triggered by light – are both ubiquitous and critical to nature.
ColdQuanta Branches Out with Electronics for Laboratory Experiments Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) May 22, 2014 ColdQuanta announces immediate availability
In an attempt to help scale down the size of electronic devices to atomic dimensions, researchers from Cornell University and the Brookhaven National Laboratory have demonstrated how to convert a particular transition metal oxide from a metal to an insulator...
The coldest spot on the universe will soon be onboard the International Space Station (ISS), as NASA researchers are developing a new device that will allow them to study matter at temperatures nearing absolute zero.
In contrast to its apparent simplicity (that brought Einstein his Nobel Prize), the photoelectric effect, when an electron is knocked out from its parent atom by a photon, is quite complicated to analyze in general, especially when the atom contains a large number of electrons.
Growth in Cold and Ultracold Company Market Prompts Move Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) December 06, 2013 ColdQuanta, Inc.
JILA researchers have developed a method of spinning electric and magnetic fields around trapped molecular ions to measure whether the ions' tiny electrons are truly round—research with major implications for future scientific understanding of the universe.
Niels Henrik David Bohr (October 7, 1885 - November 18, 1962) was a Danish physicist. He made essential contributions to understanding atom structure and quantum mechanics. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Christian Bohr and Ellen Adler, Bohr got his doctorate at Copenhagen University in 1911. He then studied under Ernest Rutherford in Manchester, England. Based on Rutherford's theories, Bohr published his Bohr model about atom structure in 1913, introducing the theory of electrons...
