Towards T1-limited magnetic resonance imaging using Rabi beats Academic Article uri icon


  • Two proof-of-principle experiments toward T1-limited magnetic resonance imaging with NV centers in diamond are demonstrated. First, a large number of Rabi oscillations is measured and it is demonstrated that the hyperfine interaction due to the NV's 14N can be extracted from the beating oscillations. Second, the Rabi beats under V-type microwave excitation of the three hyperfine manifolds is studied experimentally and described theoretically. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
