Quantum laser stores data in electron wave

The recent breakthroughs in quantum or molecular computers that use component parts of individual molecules as bit storage devices may be oversized and slow compared to a storage technology being pioneered by a University of Michigan researcher. He seems to have found a way to make use of the particle wave paradox, encoding an electron’s energy state using a pulsating laser with string of ones and zeros. Theoretically, and those working in this field admit that they have along way to go before proving the commercial viability of the concept, one electron could store in its wave state the contents of the library of congress.
