The Physicsweb report: Physicists in China, Austria and Germany claim to have created the largest ever
photonic "Schroedinger cat", a popularized term given to entangled particles that are in a superposition of two  quantum states. The physicists also claim their apparatus can create a six-photon "cluster" state, which could  bring the physical realization of a quantum computer one step closer (Nature Physics doi:10.1038/nphys507).
