Bohr-scientists figure out how to measure electrical activity in a fetal heart

By | 2019-03-04T13:56:36+00:00 November 1st, 2018|News|

NEW DIAGNOSTIC TOOL: Discovery points to new diagnostic equipment - based on a cloud of caesium atoms locked up in a hermetically closed glass cell. And within just three years this equipment will make it possible to diagnose specific fetal heart conditions, scientists from the Niels Bohr Institute at University of Copenhagen predict. Hearts ‘run’ on [...]

Effective reflection of light for quantum technology

By | 2017-05-17T08:52:41+00:00 September 23rd, 2016|News|

Light usually spreads out in all directions and when the light hits an object, it is reflected and is scattered even more. So light is normally quite uncontrollable. But researchers want to be able to control light all the way down to the atomic level in order to develop future quantum technologies. Researchers at the [...]

Optical magnetic field sensor can detect signals from the nervous system

By | 2017-05-17T08:52:53+00:00 July 15th, 2016|News|

Quantum physics: The human body is controlled by electrical impulses in, for example, the brain, the heart and nervous system. These electrical signals create tiny magnetic fields, which doctors could use to diagnose various diseases, for example diseases of the brain or heart problems in young foetuses. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have now [...]
