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
