Dressed spin

Dressed Spin

Strong RF fields change the effective magnetic moments of neutrons and 3He

  • First 3He spin dressing measurements performed in April 2005

  • Change of 3He Larmor frequency with a dressing field has been observed.

In the B0<<B1 limit, the g factor modification has a simple formula


Dressed neutron spin already observed

Effective g factor vs. RF field strength:

Dressed Neutron Spin already observed

Muskat, PRL 58(20), 1987

Numerical simulations reproduced these results

Fits the J0(gB1/w) prediction


Critical dressing equalizes precession rates

Critical dressing equalizes precession rates

  • Reduce the effect of B0 [instability] on the two species

  • A check of gn=g3: scintillation no longer modulated

Crossing points equalize neutron and 3He g factors:

Ramsey experiment technique sof

Adding an RF dressing field slows down spin precession between the flip coils (or speeds it up…) & changes the minimum transmission frequency

accepts P=+1 state

When the RF pulses are applied on resonance (at the Larmor frequency) the 3He spin direction is completely reversed (minimal transmission)

  • Polarization (as fn. of B1) averages over 3He velocities

  • P(B1) measures Fourier cosine transform of velocity spectrum

  • Invert the FT to measure N(v):

Velocity spectrum deduced from April measurements needs to be calibrated, but we expect agreement

Outlook

Outlook

  • Continue analysis

    • Understand observed Larmor freq. behavior

  • Upcoming measurements (this week) will emulate EDM experimental conditions

    • More intense dressing fields over smaller volume (new coils already built)

    • Smaller B0 (limited by earth’s field ~5 G)

    • Larger dressing field frequency ~50-100 kHz
