Hi Richard,

do you mean a matrix representation of the eigenvectors ? or the
usual C^2 representation ? If you have a matrix it is no problem 
to diagonalize it with Eigensystem[].

My book (german) as well as
Quantum Methods with Mathematica
     James M. Feagin
     (TELOS/Springer-Verlag, 1994)
     ISBN 0-387-97973-5 (hardcover/482 pages) 

will give you several examples.

Hope that helps
