Ability to manipulate a single electron marks a leap in quantum computing

A major hurdle in the ambitious quest to design and construct a radically new kind of quantum computer has been finding a way to manipulate the single electrons that very likely will constitute the new machines' processing components or qubits. Princeton University's Jason Petta has discovered how to do just that.
