Quantum mechanic frequency filter for atomic clocks

06 March 2015

Quantum mechanic frequency filter for atomic clocks In an atomic clock, electrons jumping from one orbit to another decides the clock’s frequency. To get the electrons to jump, researchers shine light on the atoms using stabilised laser light. However, the laser light has to have a very

New superconducting hybrid crystals developed at the University of Copenhagen

12 January 2015

New superconducting hybrid crystals developed at the University of Copenhagen  A new type of ‘nanowire’ crystals that fuses semiconducting and metallic materials on the atomic scale could lay the foundation for future semiconducting electronics. Researchers at the University of Copenhagen are behind

Atoms queue up for quantum computer networks

24 December 2014

Atoms queue up for quantum computer networksIn order to develop future quantum computer networks, it is necessary to hold a known number of atoms. To do this, researchers from NBI have developed a method with a trap that captures the atoms along an ultra thin glass fiber

Breakthrough in light sources for new quantum technology

29 August 2014

Future quantum circuits are photonic circuits, i.e. circuits based on light (photons) instead of electrons. Now scientists at the Niels Bohr Institute have succeeded in creating a steady stream of photons emitted one at a time and in a

Unavoidable disorder used to build nanolaser

23 March 2014

Unavoidable disorder used to build nanolaser Researchers at NBI have discovered that imperfect nanostructures can offer entirely new functionalities. They have shown that imperfect optical chips can be used to produce ‘nanolasers’, which is an ultimately compact and

Ultra sensitive detection of radio waves with lasers

05 March 2014

Ultra sensitive detection of radio waves with lasers When detecting radio waves ‘noise’ in the instrument limits how sensitive and precise the measurements can be. Now researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute have developed a new method where they can avoid noise by means of
