  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.

  Mastering the Mission: NROTC at Penn Engineering
 
Demanding academics, the rigors of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) program, and a social life. Students who elect NROTC at a prestigious university like Penn usually accept the conventional wisdom that says a person can be successful in two of the three angles of this triangle of challenges. Keelen Collins, MEAM, seems to have mastered all three, at a sacrifice of course. Collins doesn't get a lot of sleep.
