How does the quantum-to-classical transition of measurement occur? This question is vital for both foundations and applications of quantum mechanics. We present a full characterization of classical and quantum electron-photon interactions employing a measurement-based framework. To explain the emergence of 'classicality' in the measurement process, we first analyze the transition from projective measurement to weak measurement in generic light-matter interactions. We then show that any… Expand
