- Hans Christian Ørsted Institute
The Hans Christian Ørsted Institute at the
University of Copenhagenis a building complex that houses the departments of Mathematics and Chemistry, as well as part of Physics. It is named after the physicist Hans Christian Ørsted( 1777- 1851), who discovered electromagnetism( 1820) and was the first to isolate aluminium( 1825). By students and staff the institute is commonly called simply "HCØ".
The complex is made up of 5 connected buildings: A, B, C, D and E.
Building A is a long connecting building, it's in ground, 1st floor and basement level and holds the canteen and auditories.
Building B is a 5 floor building, and holds facilities for inorganic (ground, 1st and 2nd level) and
organic chemistry(3rd, 4th and 5th level). In the basement of the building is a mass spectrometryapparatus.Building C is a 5 floor building similar to building B and holds the sections for theoretical chemistry and spectroscopy.Building D is a 5 floor building similar to B and C, but this is dedicated to physics and is as such part of the Niels Bohr Institute. It holds the "Ørsted Laboratory".
Building E is another type building, not as large as the other three. It holds the mathematical section.
