LAB TOURS

The lab tours will be planned to give the participants a chance to see and hear about some of the research that goes on at the University of Copenhagen. We will have a variety of smaller lab tours, that the participants can select from. Each participant will be able to visit 2-3 different labs, depending on tour length.

ISKÆLDEREN – ICE CORE FREEZER (1)

The ice core freezer is an experience where you will be able to see ice cores from Greenland. In the ice you can see how the different layers of ice corresponds to different years, and how major events are visible by the naked eye.

NIELS BOHR’s OFFICE (2)

Niels Bohr’s office is left unaltered since he was using it. Take a trip through history with our talented Niels Bohr Archive – The historical office of the Niels Bohr Institute. The office is still in use for various meetings.

QUANTOP – QUANTUM OPTICS (3)

The Danish Center for Quantum Optics (QUANTOP) started as a DNRF Center of Excellence in 2001. QUANTOP’s research is focused on exploring quantum effects at the interface between light and matter.

NBI COLLIDER SCOPE (4)

The NBI Collider Scope is an art installation with a link to CERN. The flashing light that moves across the building shows the detector track in the ATLAS detector at CERN. This and much more will be explained by our excellent guide.

QDEV (5)

QDev – Center for Quantum Devices – will show some of the leading research in the field of quantum computing. QDev is one pf very few Q-labs in the world, meaning that they are funded by Microsoft and work closely with Microsoft developing a quantum computer.

WALK IN FÆLLEDPARKEN (6)

Fælledparken is a park just behind the Niels Bohr Institute. This tour will be a walk in the park, with a guide telling stories from the park and the institute.

RIGSHOSPITALET – THE NATIONAL HOSPITAL (7)

At the hospital we will be shown a cyclotron used every day to produce the radioactive isotopes necessary for a variety of medical procedures.
