Kinetic decoupling pulse experiments extend electron spin decoherence time in malonic acid single crystals Time(μs)
Electron spins in solid-state systems are one of the important carriers of quantum bits required for quantum computing research, and pulsed electron paramagnetic resonance techniques can enable the preparation, manipulation, and readout of electron spin quantum states for the study of important problems in quantum computing. Scientists have used the optimal kinetic decoupling technique to improve the decoherence time of electron spins in solid-state systems from 0.04 μs to 30 μs in gamma-irradiated malonic acid single crystals.
Electron-electron double resonance technique is one of the important tools for biological structure elucidation. Using the electron spin labeling technique for specific labeling of biomolecules such as proteins and RNA, the electron-electron interaction strength is measured by the EPR (ESR) technique, which can provide information on the distance between labeled sites and thus can be used for biological structure resolution. This technique can be used to measure 1.7-8.
DEER (double electron–electron resonance) Experiment
By studying the electron-electron interactions, distance detection between paramagnetic species in close proximity to physiological reactions or chemical reaction environments can be achieved.
