Cancer treatment on a cellular level

02 March 2016

The most common treatments for cancer are radiation and chemotherapy. However they have side effects and also damage healthy tissues. Researchers at NBI are therefore working to develop a gentler treatment that ‘tricks’ the

Nanowires could be the LEDs of the future

24 June 2015

Nanowires could be the LEDs of the future The latest research from the Niels Bohr Institute shows that LEDs made from nanowires will use less energy and provide better light. The researchers studied nanowires using X-ray microscopy and with this method they can pinpoint exactly...

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

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

Nanowire solar cells raises efficiency limit

24 March 2013

Scientists from the Nano-Science Center at the Niels Bohr Institut have shown that a single nanowire can concentrate the sunlight up to 15 times of the normal sun light intensity. The results are surprising and the potential is great
