• #### Classical and quantum-mechanical scaling of ionization from excited hydrogen atoms in single-cycle THz pulses ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2017-08-25)
Excited atoms, or nanotip surfaces, exposed to strong single-cycle terahertz radiation emit electrons with energies strongly dependent on the characteristics of the initial state. Here we consider scaling properties of the ...

Journal article
• #### Physical activity level at work and risk of chronic low back pain: A follow-up in the Nord-Trøndelag Health Study ﻿

(PLOS, 2017-04-10)
Background: Physical activity in leisure time seems to reduce the risk of low back pain, but it is not known whether occupational activity, as recorded in a representative working population, produces a higher or lower ...

• #### Bacterial Response to Permafrost Derived Organic Matter Input in an Arctic Fjord ﻿

(Frontiers, 2018-08-06)
The warming of the Arctic causes increased riverine discharge, coastal erosion, and the thawing of permafrost. Together, this is leading to an increased wash out of terrestrial dissolved organic matter (tDOM) into the ...
