In this paper we prove that perception of light can be controlled quantum mechanically by shaping the phase of light itself.
Quantum control of molecular reactions in-vitro is already an achievement in itself. Here, we go further an show that, beyond the immediate isomerization of rhodopsin, the molecule responsible for our vision, the control can be extended to physiological responses.
This work is the fruit of a laborious 7 years long project headed by Prof. J.-P. Wolf, at the U. of Geneva.
