New additions to the Schrodinger cat family

Authors:N Gisin
Journal:Science 312, 63–64 (2006)

Abstract:Schrödinger cat states entail superpositions of seemingly opposite quantum states, metaphorically like a cat being both dead and alive. Femotsecond laser pulses can now induce photons into small and unbound Schrödinger kitten states.
