Optical Microchip Detection of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance



M Ledbetter, I Savukov, D Budker, Vishal Shah, Svenja A. Knappe, John Kitching, S Xu, D Michalak, A Pines


We demonstrate optical detection of nuclear magnetic resonance on a microchip. A theoretical optimization indicates detection limits that are competitive with that demonstrated by microcoils in high magnetic fields, without requiring superconducting magnets.
