Optical Spectroscopy of Quantum Spin Systems

Reproduced on the cover is the first direct observation of a pair of strongly-coupled giant quantum spins, embedded in a quasi one-dimensional tulip system. This incredible snap-shot was taken by Markus Grüninger in the countryside of Leiden, The Netherlands, in March 1996.
