When quantum neighbours ‘gossip’

2015.03.18During the last decade, physicists throughout the world have developed and refined laser spectroscopy research to such an extent that it is now possible to carry out experiments with just one atom or molecule. A group involving Danish researchers has now created the basis for extending this research to a completely new class of atomic systems, paving the way for new types of experiments in the coming years.

Atlas of thoughts

2015.03.18Using a computer game, a research group at Aarhus University has found a way to gain deeper insight into the human thought process. The results have amazed the research director, who has discovered a kind of ‘atlas of thoughts’. And that is not all. The group can also reveal which gender is best at solving quantum problems.
