A new path towards quantum computers

The supercomputer of the future operates with quantum bits, but quantum systems are fragile and they degrade easily. Now Danish scientists have managed to turn this degradation into an advantage, making it easier to create the special quantum states required for a quantum computer.

Red figures for Oslo - Stockholm fast train

The bottom line figures flash as red as a stoplight when using a new method of calculating the profitability of a prospective high-speed rail between the Norwegian and Swedish capitals.

Time-lapse incubator identifies healthiest eggs

New video monitoring technology allows doctors to monitor artificially fertilised eggs before they are inserted into the uterus. The technology has been used successfully abroad and can help doctors identify the best eggs for incubation.

Singing water reveals itself

With a rapidly growing world population, clean drinking water has become a scarce resource. Using new technology that traces sound signals, Danish scientists hope to find groundwater in densely populated areas.

How childplay inspired new artificial brain

We can throw and catch a ball because our brain uses patterns to recognise situations and react to them. This form of pattern recognition is now being used to develop an artificial brain, which in record time can simulate buildings and produce a fatigue life estimation.

Apps open new urban dimensions

Architecture is more than building design. The project YoUrban uses digital technology to reveal layer upon layer of action, interaction and future visions.

Helicopter technology to solve Indian water shortage

Danish scientists have developed a special technology which uses a helicopter to locate groundwater. The technique is currently being used to search for clean drinking water in India.

Smartphone app battles trauma from abuse

Victims of abuse could soon find help from an app under development that will include tests, information about symptoms and useful local initiatives.

Danes drill deep for geothermal energy

Political determination and natural advantages combine to heat up Denmark's investment in geothermal resources.

Old concrete can purify rainwater

Strange as it may sound, concrete from your old bathroom can help make our environment greener. This is because concrete has a great ability to bind phosphorus, say the scientists behind a new project.

Hi-tech brew house to fight bad beer

A new, advanced brew house at Aarhus University aims to help Denmark’s small breweries avoid bad brew. The technology will also boost engineering students’ understanding of high-tech sensors.

Hydrogen cars now one step closer

Scientists have taken a big step towards making environmentally-friendly hydrogen cars a reality.
