Penn Engineers Help Record an Electron’s Quantum Behavior

blurb: 
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, University of California, Santa Barbara, and University of Konstanz, Germany, have developed a technique to record the quantum mechanical behavior of an individual electron contained within a nanoscale defect in diamond. Their technique uses ultrafast pulses of laser light both to control the defect’s entire quantum state and observe how that single electron state changes over time.
