Breaking the limits of classical physics

07 June 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...

New record for measurement of atomic lifetime

07 September 2011

New record for measurement of atomic lifetime 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.

Quantum optical link sets new time records

17 August 2011

Quantum optical link sets new time records The key component in quantum communication over long distances is entanglement between two atomic systems. Entanglement is very fragile and up until now researchers have only been able to maintain the...

Photons lost in a maze

28 June 2011

Enhancing the interaction between light and matter is the essence of many research disciplines, including quantum information science, energy harvesting and optical biosensing. The traditional method has been to strongly confine light in,

Quantum back action

06 June 2011

Quantum dots are all-solid-state single-photon emitters that are likely to play a key role in the emerging quantum information technology. A major challenge, however, is to enhance the interaction between light and matter such that quantum effects are pronounced.
