Taking a good look at cloning

A single-photon is amplified through cloning via stimulated emission in a non-linear crystal (orange block) The clones are split into two orthogonal polarization modes by a polarizing filter (blue block)and each mode is detected by a naked human eye. The polarization basis can be varied with the help of a waveplate (green block). (Courtesy: Nicolas Gisin).
