Submission + - Tiniest lamp spans quantum and classical physics

Urchin writes: "Physicists in California have made the smallest ever incandescent lamp using a carbon nanotube as the filament. The nanotube is so small it behaves as a quantum mechanical system but it's just large enough that the classical physics rules of thermodynamics should apply. Analyzing the light emitted from the tiny light will give the team a better picture of what happens in the twilight zone between the quantum and classical worlds. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn17058-worlds-tiniest-lamp-spans-quantum-and-classical-physics.html"
