2.5M Euro Vacuum Fridge to Leiden Physics Institute
Tjerk Oosterkamp is awarded an NWO Large Grant of 2.5 million euro to build a machine that offers an environment with ultra-high vacuum and very low temperatures, only one thousandth of a degree above absolute zero. This will provide many More info
Important Step for Proposed Sterile Neutrino Experiment
An ambitious plan to add a new angle to the hunt for dark matter has passed an important landmark. A collaboration of particle physicists and theorists, with a leading role for Leiden University’s Alexey Boyarsky, has proposed an experiment to More info

Michel Orrit Wins Physica Prize 2016
Michel Orrit is honoured with the Physica prize 2016 for his groundbreaking work on single molecule spectroscopy. In the mid ‘80s, Orrit came to the realization that it should be possible to optically detect a single molecule. A few years More info

Four Photons Entangled in Orbital Angular Momentum
For the first time, scientists have entangled four photons in their orbital angular momentum. Leiden physicists sent a laser through a crystal, thereby creating four photons with coupled ‘rotation’. So far this has only been done for two photons. The More info
