  Lee Bassett Collaborates to Record an Electron's Quantum Behavior
 
Lee Basset, assistant professor in ESE, is co-leader of a collaboration that has developed a way to record the quantum mechanical behavior of an individual electron. This research uses a spin system known as the "nitrogen-vacancy center," an atom-sized defect that occurs naturally in diamond. This research could accelerate development of quantum computing devices, and the extra computing power that would come with them.
