Latest Atomic physics Stories
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.
Scientists from the Heidelberg Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics (MPIK) in cooperation with DESY (Hamburg) at the synchrotron PETRA III have investigated for the first time X-ray absorption of highly charged iron ions.
Science Community now has entire system available to help drive applications into BEC and Ultracold Atoms. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 05, 2013 Notoriously
Without the currently available plethora of X-ray methods, basic research in the physical sciences would be unthinkable.
A first for the Boulder based company: training physicists to create Bose Einstein Condensates in four days. Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) August 02, 2013

In a joint project between the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow, Imperial College London and the National Physical Laboratory, researchers have developed a portable way to produce ultracold atoms for quantum technology and quantum information processing.
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...
