Detecting individual nuclear spins with single rare-earth ions hosted in crystals

“Our previous study was conducted on a YAG crystal, which has an even denser spin bath than YSO, and showed relatively short coherent interaction time for the investigated electron spins,” Roman Kolesov, one of the researchers who carried out the study, told “The measured coherence time gave the motivation to investigate cerium in another host crystal with slightly more dilute nuclear spin bath, namely YSO, which still has a considerable amount of nuclear spin isotopes with 100% yttrium-89 and 5% silicon-29.”
