Optical Pumping Experiments to Increase the Polarization in Nuclear-spin Based Quantum Computers

Nuclear-magnetic-resonance (NMR) quantum-computer architectures have been by far the leading architectures in implementing small-scale proof-of-principle quantum computations. However, for an efficient computer initialization, nuclear spin polarizations of 100% are required. The low thermal nuclear-spin polarizations therefore prevent the realization of… CONTINUE READING
