Artist’s view of individual electrons interacting with an optical whispering gallery mode as it circles a silica sphere. The matching between the velocities of the electron and the light-wave it is riding changes the quantum state of the electron, illustrated as a wider halo. Credit: Dr. Murat Sivis.
