Subatomic storage

Stanford Univiersity searchers succeeded in storing more than one bit per attom, by encoding information in the wave functions of electrons (if I understood the article well). The team markets this as Quantum holographic encoding and claims to have stored 35 bits per electron.
Good to know that Schrodinger's equation, Hamiltonian operators, eigenvalues and eigenfunctions have their use.
