Latest Niels Bohr Stories
In this month's issue of Physics World, Felicity Mellor, a senior lecturer in science communication at Imperial College London, questions whether the requirement of the modern physicist to collaborate and communicate is preventing the intellectual progress brought about by silence and solitude.
Usually, when researchers work with quantum information, they do everything they can to prevent the information from decaying. Now researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, have flipped things around and are exploiting the decay to create the so-called entanglement of atomic systems, which is the foundation for quantum information processing.
Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, together with colleagues in the US and Australia, have developed a method to control a quantum bit for electronic quantum communication in a series of quantum dots, which behave like artificial atoms in the solid state.
Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have announced the capacity to consistently teleport information between two clouds of gas atoms, according to a report in the journal Nature Physics.
Rice University physicists have gone to extremes to prove that Isaac Newton's classical laws of motion can apply in the atomic world: They've built an accurate model of part of the solar system inside a single atom of potassium.
Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute have combined two worlds – quantum physics and nano physics, and this has led to the discovery of a new method for laser cooling semiconductor membranes.
Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute have measured the lifetime of an extremely stable energy level of magnesium atoms with great precision.
Quantum communication could be an option for the absolutely secure transfer of data.
Carl Friedrich Freiherr von WeizsÃ¤cker (June 28, 1912 "“ 28 April 2007) was German physicist and philosopher. He was the longest-living member of Werner Heisenberg's research team which investigated nuclear studies in Germany during World War II. Some argue whether he and the team willingly engaged in the development of a nuclear bomb for Germany, or if its failure was intentional because they did not want the Nazi regime to have nuclear weapons. WeizÃ¤cker was born in Kiel,...
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...
