I tried to send a working version of your code yesterday, but the message was bounced because the attachments were too big; I will resend when I get to the office. For now, your problem here is twofold:

1) derived_dimension is a convenience typedef for integer powers; you need to use make_dimension_list<>
2) once you have defined the dimension, you also need to typedef a unit in the SI system corresponding to your desired length^(-1/2) dimension:

typedef unit<quantum_wavefunction_1D,si::system> quantum_wavefunction_1D_unit
