Latest Niels Bohr Stories
Papers document history of frontier physics research COLLEGE PARK, Md., July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Niels Bohr Library and Archives of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), has digitized and released online the complete papers of renowned physicist Samuel A.
Researchers have changed one of the most basic rules of quantum mechanics.
Quantum mechanics is famous for saying that a tree falling in a forest when there's no one there doesn't make a sound.
There is considerable interest in understanding transport and information pathways in living cells.
A new paper by University of Notre Dame physicist BoldizsÃ¡r JankÃ³ and colleagues offers an important new understanding of an enduring mystery in chemical physics.
New research shows that the Earth and Moon must have formed much later â€“ perhaps up to 150 million years after the formation of the solar system.
Scientists funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Wellcome Trust at the University of Birmingham have carried out â€œlaboratory gunfightsâ€ to show that we move faster when we react to something in our environment than we do when we initiate the action ourselves â€“ an idea inspired by cowboy movies but in reality more useful for avoiding oncoming traffic.
New research, which reconstructs the extent of ice in the sea between Greenland and Svalbard from the 13th century to the present indicates that there has never been so little sea ice as there is now.
A clock that is so precise that it loses only a second every 300 million years â€“ this is the result of new research in ultra cold atoms.
Nearly a century after Danish physicist Niels Bohr offered his planet-like model of the hydrogen atom, a Rice University-led team of physicists has created giant, millimeter-sized atoms that resemble it more closely than any other experimental realization yet achieved.
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...
