Measurement of a Quantum State of a Single Molecule Magnet with Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy
Abstract:A single molecule magnet (SMM) is one of the possible candidates for quantum information processing. In this paper, we analyze the spin dynamics of a SMM in the presence of anisotropic field. We propose the measurement of a SMM quantum state with magnetic resonance force microscopy (MRFM). An analytical expression for the MRFM signal produced by the SMM is obtained.
