Abstract

This study involves the use of adaptive signal processing techniques to improve the sensitivity of continuous wave electrically detected magnetic resonance. The approach should be of widespread utility in continuous wave magnetic resonance experiments of all kinds. We utilize adaptive signal averaging to expedite the averaging process usually performed in magnetic resonance experiments. We were capable of reducing the noise variance in a single trace by a factor of 11.3 which is equivalent to reduction in time by the same factor. This factor can be quite significant especially when signal averaging must be performed over the span of many hours to days. This technique may also be tailored to conventional electron spin resonance experiments and other techniques where signal averaging is utilized. The approach may offer promise in the eventual development of spin based quantum computing.
