The phase diagram of the electron-hole fluid in photoexcited semiconductors at low temperatures remains partially a mystery. In the best-understood case, germanium, new results indicate that the phase diagram differs from that of simple fluids. A related discovery is that the exciton description of the gas breaks down near the Mott density.
