Liu I will be pushed down, even by a weakest lady. I will be standing firmly once I am against a wall, even pushed by a strongest man. Protection provided by the wall. PRB 82, (2010).

2 Introduction and experimental background A two-region model
Outline Introduction and experimental background A two-region model DNP process: formation of a polarized core Protection effect on the center-spin coherence Numerical simulations and discussions of experimental results Conclusions

3 Solid-state architecture of QIP
Atomic/Optical Cavity QED Long coherence time Not easily interacted Not easily scaled Solid-state Quantum dots Easily scalable Easily interacted Not so great coherence Coherence is important for QIP, especially for solid state architecture.

4 Quantum dots 500 nm Experimental conditions:
A.C. Johnson’s Thesis, Harvard Univ.. Experimental conditions: QD size ~ 100  100  10 nm3 Low temperature ~ 100 mK Low magnetic field  100 mT Coherence time ~ 10 ns Spatial degree of freedom frozen

5 Qubit decoherence Classical bit Quantum bit (Qubit)
Arbitrary superposition of 2 basis states 2 states only Qubit decoherence: Interacting with environment → qubit “forgets” its phase No decoherence: Complete decoherence: 量子计算 和 并行计算 (DNA计算机)的差别 Dwave – 16 个量子比特

6 Free induction decay Petta et al., Science 309, 2180 (2005) 10 ns

7 Spin decoherence in a QD
Decoherence source – hyperfine interaction: S – electron spin-1/2 Ik – k-th nuclear spin located at rk (also assume 1/2) Merkulov et al., Phys. Rev. B 65, (2002). Erlingsson et al., Phys. Rev. B 70, (2004). Deng & Hu, Phys. Rev. B 73, (R) (2006). Zhang et al., Phys. Rev. B 74, (2006). Taylor et al., Phys. Rev. B 76, (2007).

8 Preserve coherence via spin echo

9 Dynamical decoupling 10 ns τ = 0.1
FID NRD PDD RPD SDD SRPD PCDD2 τ = 0.1 10 ns Requires 2-axis short pulses (<1 ns). Zhang et al., Phys. Rev. B 75, (R) (2007); 77, (2008).

10 Preserve coherence via polarization
I. Uniform nuclear polarization (> 90% ) G. Burkard, D. Loss, and D. P. DiVincenzo, Phys. Rev. B 59, 2070 (1999). W. A. Coish and D. Loss, Phys. Rev. B 70, (2004). C. Deng and X. Hu, Phys. Rev. B 73, (R) (2006). 1. Thermal polarizaiton in strong magnetic field – 10% 2. Spin dependent optical pumping – 60% II. Non-uniform nuclear polarization – DNP via electron Experiments (~1%): D. J. Reilly et al., Science 321, 817 (2008); Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, (2010). Theories (~1%): G. Ramon and X. Hu, Phys. Rev. B 75, (R) (2007). M. Gullans et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, (2010). W. Zhang et al., Phys. Rev. B 82, (2010).

11 Uniform polarization effect (I)
N = 105, envelope of correlation function G⊥ Polarization is uniform. 10 times extension of dephasing time if P>90% Deng and Hu, Phys. Rev. B 73, (R) (2006); Phys. Rev. B 78, (2008).

12 Uniform polarization effect (II)

13 DNP process 3 2 1 1 2 3 Electron spin: +2 * Nuclear spin: -2

14 Double quantum dots Unpolarized Maximally polarized Ak = A, uniform
Scaled with N=105 Zamboni Effect 50 times longer Ramon and Hu, Phys. Rev. B 75, (R) (2007).

15 Non-uniform polarization

16 Polarization transfer – a two-region model
H0 = H0 = 6 I1 A1 = 10 A2 I2 Saturation at long time in large magnetic fields, Ikz ~ (Ak / H0)2.

17 Polarization ratio (single DNP cycle)
I1 / I2 r A2 / A1 = 0.1 r ≡ P1 / P2 = (A2 / A1)2 in medium-to-large magnetic fields. Strongly coupled spins have higher polarization.

18 Multiple DNP cycles

19 Polarized core protection effect
Polarization 4 2

20 Two-region model Two effects are separable:
T1/2 is determined by b2 = (N2)1/2 A2 instead of b = (N1 A12+N2 A22)1/2 ; Protection effect of the polarized core: What skirt spins decoheres is not a single electron spins but a compound of an electron spin and a polarized nuclear spin core, which further makes the coherence time longer and make T1/2 increase linearly with N1.

21 Experimental results

22 Numerical methods Small N: Chebyshev expansion

40 times extension of DNP with P = 0.7 (N=20), 0.25 (N=256) and Pk ~ Ak2; Linear decay at large polarizations; Small oscillations at short times; Abrupt increase of T1/2 if P is larger than a critical value PC but much smaller than 1; PC decreases with N increasing; Polarized nuclear spin core is formed if P > PC; Protection effect of the polarized core.
