In Vivo EPR Resolution Enhancement Using Techniques Known from Quantum Computing Spin Technology
A crucial issue with in vivo biological/medical EPR is its low signal-to-noise ratio, giving rise to the low spectroscopic resolution. We propose quantum hyperpolarization techniques based on ‘Heat Bath Algorithmic Cooling’, allowing possible approaches for improving the resolution in magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging.
