Minimising the Decoherence of Rare Earth Ion Solid State Spin Qubits

Fraval, Elliot


This work has demonstrated that hyperfine decoherence times sufficiently long for QIP and quantum optics applications are achievable in rare earth ion centres. Prior to this work there were several QIP proposals using rare earth hyperfine states for long term coherent storage of optical interactions. The very long T_1 (~weeks ) observed for rare-earth hyperfine transitions appears promising but hyperfine T_2s were only a few ms, comparable to rare earth optical transitions and therefore the...[Show more]
