Published April 19, 2010
Quantum jumps such as those observed in photon emission from single molecules show a complex behavior that
may indicate a phase transition between different kinds of temporal dynamics.

When we think about a phase transition, we typically
have in mind those that are driven by
temperature--say spins locking collectively into the
same direction at the Curie temperature of a
ferromagnet or molecules forming a rarefied, as
