The one-electron cyclotron oscillator in thermal equilibrium at temperatures between 70 mK and 4.2 K is ideal for illustrating and investigating Fock states, quantum measurement, and excitations to extended quantum states. Cyclotron transitions can be induced by introducing a resonance microwave field into the cavity, even when the detection amplifier is off. The extended 16-second spontaneous emission time gives plenty of time for tuning the amplifier back on to detect an excitation before it decays.
