Latest Atomic physics Stories
Transforming lead into gold is an impossible feat, but a similar type of "alchemy" is not only possible, but cost-effective too.
Study of ultracold atoms proves theory about universal quantum mechanism.
Physicists face the daunting task of developing new, reliable ways of measuring extreme low temperatures.
Research creates a readout system for quantum simulation and computation.
Investigating mysterious data in ultracold gases of rubidium atoms, scientists at the Joint Quantum Institute of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland and their collaborators have found that properly tuned radio-frequency waves can influence how much the atoms attract or repel one another, opening up new ways to control their interactions.
Rather than reducing disorder, physicists find a way to simply move it somewhere else.
Realization of an excited, strongly correlated many-body phase.
First evidence that a method proposed 3 decades ago really works.
Physicists have found a way to drastically prolong the shelf life of quantum bits, the 0s and 1s of quantum computers.
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...
