Latest Atomic physics Stories
Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen have developed a method that used a trap to capture atoms along an ultra-thin glass fiber, where those atoms can be controlled. Their results have been published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
Rapid Deployment of First Portable System to Produce Ultracold Atoms Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) December 04, 2014 ColdQuanta recently shipped out its
Physicists at the University of Basel have developed a new cooling technique for mechanical quantum systems. Using an ultracold atomic gas, the vibrations of a membrane were cooled down to less than 1 degree above absolute zero.
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.
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...
