# Quantum Phase Transition Observed For The First Time

### EXAMPLE:

*J.M.Fink*and his collaborators will publish in the journal

*Physical Review X*give insight into the quantum mechanical basis of this effect in a microscopic, zero-dimensional system.

“We have observed this random switching between opaque and transparent for the first time and in agreement with theoretical predictions,” says lead author Johannes Fink from IST Austria.

“Our experiment took exactly 1.6 milliseconds to complete for any given input power. The corresponding numerical simulation took a couple of days on a national supercomputer cluster. This gives an idea why these systems could be useful for quantum simulations,” Fink explains.
