Abstract:

We experimentally demonstrate a method for obtaining nuclear spin hyperpolarization, that is, polarization significantly in excess of that expected for a thermal equilibrium. By exploiting a modified Overhauser process, we obtain more than 68% nuclear anti-polarization of phosphorus donors in silicon. This polarization is reached with a time constant of ~150 seconds, at a temperature of 1.37 K and a magnetic field of 8.5 T. The ability to obtain such large polarizations is discussed with regards to its significance for quantum information processing and magnetic resonance imaging.
