A fully quantum microscope theory is developed that explains all of the data as Fermions cooling and photoluminescing in a semiconductor microcavity. Because this theory treats electrons and holes as the fermions they are, it can be used to compute the bosonic commutator which should be unity if the system can be described bosonically. The value of this commutator has dropped to roughly 0.5 by crossover which indicates a too-high-density nonbosonic character.
