Aspects of dynamical nuclear polarization in GaAs double quantum dots
Arijeet Pal, Princeton & KITP

Experiments have achieved a remarkable degree of quantum control of states of a few electrons confined in gate-defined quantum dots. The spin degree of freedom of the trapped electrons are promising building blocks for quantum information processing. In these experiments the environment of nuclear spins plays an important role in manipulating the electronic states. I will present the experimental progress and the associated theoretical description, in understanding the interplay of dynamical nuclear polarization and spin-orbit interaction in GaAs double quantum dots.
