Quantum Entanglement

Experimental Science Dissemination at Niels Bohr Institute

Making the abstract nature of the quantum world less abstract

Quantum Entanglement

Quantum Entanglement strives to show how animation can help and enrich public outreach of quantum physics, revolving around experiments done at The Danish Center for Quantum Optics (QUANTOP) at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen.

Quantum Entanglement

  • About

    The experiment itself is a practical implementation of theory. Its elements; lasers, magnet-ic fields, spin directions, impacts, fluctuations and oscillation in motion all lend themselves well to be described by 3D animation. The project explores different cinematic languages, engrossing thrilling complexity, the rush of particles and flow of the camera through mag-netic fields, streams of light and gas clouds of atoms, harrowing depths and the scale of events. We hope to show that through animation, the abstract nature of our quantum world could seem a little more real to us at our scale.

    The project is both a cinematic and methodological experiment analyzing and studying the relationship, controversies and biased worlds of scientists and visual storytellers. It results and findings are part of the Center for Animation, Visualisation and Graphics Storytelling and push for more awareness and attention to future collaborations between research cen-ters and the animation industry.

    Niels Bohr Institute


    The Danish Center for Quantum Optics (QUANTOP), at The Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen 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. The Niels Bohr Institute research and teach within a broad spectrum of physics areas: Astrophysics, Biophysics, eScience, Solid State Physics, Geophysics, Quantum Physics and Particle Physics. The institute was inaugurated March 3, 1921, by Professor Niels Bohr. Today it holds approx. 130 researchers, 70 administrative and technical staff, 100 PhD students and 400 students. https://quantop.nbi.ku.dk/
