New centre will mix exotic quantum cocktails of light and matter

The Danish National Research Foundation has granted DKK 66.6 million (EUR 8.8 mill.) to Professor Thomas Pohl and the Center for Complex Quantum Systems (CCQ). "Complex quantum systems" is no understatement. The new basic research centre will combine the known quantum technologies and see what photons, ultracold atoms and laser-cooled ions can do…

Ants fight plant diseases

New research from Aarhus University shows that ants inhibit at least 14 different plant diseases. The small insects secrete antibiotics from glands in the body. On their legs and body, they also host colonies of bacteria that secrete antibiotics. It is probably these substances that inhibit a number of different diseases and researchers now hope…

DKK 16 million for daring experiments at Aarhus University

The VILLUM FOUNDATION has granted approx. DKK 16 million to eight research projects at Aarhus University. The eight researchers behind the projects are all from Science and Technology, and the projects have been selected anonymously based on how innovative and daring they are.

Headed by Esben Auken (centre), researchers at Geoscience are testing the new technology in a field west of Aarhus. Here seen with a key collaboration partner in the project, Irene Wiborg from SEGES (agricultural consultancy), and postdoc Pradip Maurya, who is preparing the measuring equipment for the test.

New geophysical technology paves the way for a cleaner aquatic environment

Within a few years, it may be possible to better target the use of nitrogen by agriculture. Research at Aarhus University has resulted in a concept for mapping the geological strata of individual fields, which is one of the unknown, but important, links in understanding how nitrogen flows from field to fjord. Learn more about the research in the…
