Physicist Childress among 'spin doctors' making quantum discovery

While physicists have been able for decades to measure the spin state of a single atom in a vacuum, previous techniques for measuring the spin of a single electron or nucleus in a solid state disturb surrounding spins. Now researchers including Lilian Childress, assistant professor of physics at Bates, have developed a way to measure spin that avoids this problem.
