The paths of photons are random – but coordinated
20. december 2012
Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute have demonstrated that photons (light particles) emitted from light sources embedded in a complex and disordered structure are able to mutually coordinate their paths through the medium

Six researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, Kim Lefmann, Klaus Galsgaard, Uffe Gråe Jørgensen, Poul Henrik Damgaard, Jan W. Thomsen and Peter Lodahl have received grants from the Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation, FNU.
Breaking the limits of classical physics
07. juni 2012
Researchers from NBI have made a simple experiment that demonstrates that nature violates common sense. The experiment illustrates that light does not behave according to the principles of classical physics...

Peter Lodahl new professor of quantum photonics at NBI
08. september 2011
The Niels Bohr Institute has just appointed a new professor, Peter Lodahl, and in doing so have added an entirely new field of research, quantum photonics, which is a fusion of quantum optics and nanophysics.
New record for measurement of atomic lifetime
07. september 2011
Researchers at NBI have measured the lifetime of a stable energy level of magnesium atoms. The new measurements show a lifetime of up to approx. ½ hour. This is the longest ever measured in a laboratory.
