Dartmouth College professors Alex Rimberg (left) and Miles Blencowe have demonstrated quantum mechanical effects acting on the macroscopic world.

Here they are shown kneeling behind a dilution refrigerator equipped for microwave measurements. A similar apparatus was used to cool some of the samples to ultra-low temperatures and probe their electromechanical properties.
