Developing a microscopic understanding of spin decoherence is essential to advancing quantum technologies. Electron spin decoherence due to atomic vibrations (phonons) plays a special role as it sets an intrinsic limit to the performance of spin-based quantum devices. Two main sources of phonon-induced spin decoherence – the Elliott-Yafet (EY) and Dyakonov-Perel (DP) mechanisms – have distinct physical origins and theoretical treatments. Here we show calculations that unify their modeling and…

Ab initio ultrafast spin dynamics in solids
Spin relaxation and decoherence is at the heart of spintronics and spin-based quantum information science. Currently, no theoretical approaches can accurately predict spin relaxation of solids
Re-examination of the Elliott–Yafet spin-relaxation mechanism
We analyze spin-dependent carrier dynamics due to incoherent electron–phonon scattering, which is commonly referred to as Elliott–Yafet (EY) spin-relaxation mechanism. For this mechanism one usually
Spin-phonon relaxation times in centrosymmetric materials from first principles
We present a first-principles approach for computing the phonon-limited ${T}_{1}$ spin relaxation time due to the Elliott-Yafet mechanism. Our scheme combines fully relativistic spin-flip
Dyakonov-Perel spin relaxation for degenerate electrons in the electron-hole liquid
We present an analytical study of the Dyakonov-Perel spin relaxation time for degenerate electrons in a photoexcited electron-hole liquid in intrinsic semiconductors exhibiting a spin-split band
A unified theory of spin-relaxation due to spin-orbit coupling in metals and semiconductors
TLDR
This work unifies the two theories on general grounds for a generic two-band system containing intra- and inter-band SOC and identifies parameter domains when a crossover occurs between them, i.e. when an inversion symmetry broken state evolves from a D'yakonov-Perel' to an Elliott-Yafet type of spin-relaxation and conversely for a state with inversional symmetry.
Ab Initio Electron-Phonon Interactions in Correlated Electron Systems.
TLDR
First-principles calculations of e-ph interactions in CES are shown, using the framework of Hubbard-corrected density functional theory (DFT+U) and its linear response extension (DFPT-U), which can describe the electronic structure and lattice dynamics of many CES.
Hole spin relaxation in intrinsic and $p$-type bulk GaAs
We investigate hole spin relaxation in intrinsic and $p$-type bulk GaAs from a fully microscopic kinetic spin Bloch equation approach. In contrast to the previous study on hole spin dynamics, we
A coherent spin–photon interface in silicon
TLDR
Strong coupling between a single spin in silicon and a single microwave-frequency photon, with spin–photon coupling rates of more than 10 megahertz is demonstrated, which opens up a direct path to entangling single spins using microwave- frequencies.
Ultrafast spin dynamics including spin-orbit interaction in semiconductors.
TLDR
This Letter presents a theoretical investigation of ultrafast spin-dependent carrier dynamics in semiconductors due to strong spin-orbit coupling using holes in bulk GaAs as a model system, and obtains spin-relaxation times in quantitative agreement with measured hole-spin relaxation times.
