Quantum condensate radiation

    if you cool a radioactive material until it started to exhibit macroscopic quantum effects would it still radiate randomly or would it emit radiation in some coherent way?

    As long as the energy released in the decay is much larger than some energy gap (as in a superconductor), there won't be any deviations from the usual decay laws.
