Image: Woodrow Wilson quote: "The thing to be supplied is light not heat." Background image is Electron Flow in a High Mobility Two Dimensional Electron Gas

Caption: Computed flow of electrons away from a quantum point contact in a two dimensional electron gas with small angle scattering. The potential that scatters electrons is shown, together with the calculated flow, which forms branches at distances less than the mean free path.
