Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology at the Niels Bohr Institute – University of Copenhagen

The theoretical particle physics and cosmology group at the Niels Bohr Institute is involved in a wide scope of research activities centered around quantum theories of gauge fields, gravity and astrophysics. Research areas include scattering amplitudes, effective field theory, black holes, holography, lattice simulations, quantum gravity, integrability, astroparticle physics, and cosmology.


  • New discovery: Supernova explodes several times

    • 08-11-2017
    • Astronomers have for the first time discovered a star that exploded multiple times over a period of more than fifty years. These observations are challenging existing theories on cosmic catastrophes. »
  • Neutron star smash shakes universe

    • 17-10-2017
    • Scientists have, for the first time, captured gravitational waves as well as light, from two neutron stars that orbited each other ever closer to eventually collide. The groundbreaking discovery begins a new era... »
