Seeing quantum mechanics with the naked eye.

A Cambridge team have built a semiconductor chip that converts electrons into a quantum state that emits light but is large enough to see by eye. Because their quantum superfluid is simply set up by shining laser beams on the device, it can lead to practical ultrasensitive detectors.  Their research is published today, 08 January in Nature Physics.
