One of the basic objectives in the foundations of physics is to understand the detailed circumstances of the transition from pure quantum effects to classical appearances. This field has gained an even increased attention because of the fact that quantum phenomena on the mesoscopic or even macroscopic scale promise to be useful for future technologies, such as in lithography with clusters and molecules, quantum computing or highly sensitive quantum sensors.
