Protection of center-spin coherence by a dynamically polarized nuclear spin core in a quantum dot Wenxian Zhang (张文献) 复旦大学 光科学与工程系 J.-L. Hu, J. Zhuang, J. Q. You, R.-B. 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).

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.

**Qubit decoherence Classical bit Quantum bit (Qubit)**

**Double quantum dots Unpolarized Maximally polarized Ak = A, uniform**

**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.

Multiple DNP cycles

**Polarized core protection effect**

Polarization 4 2

**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.
