Molecular engineers record an electron's quantum mechanical behavior

Researchers 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.
