Hyperfine-induced dephasing in three-electron spin qubits

2017 Physical review B  
We calculate the pure dephasing time of three-electron exchange-only qubits due to interaction with the nuclear hyperfine field. Within the $S=S_z=1/2$ spin subspace, we derive formulas for the dephasing time in the $(1,1,1)$ charge region and in the neighboring charge sectors coupled by tunneling. The nuclear field and the tunneling are taken into account in a second order approximation. The analytical solutions accurately reproduce the numerical evaluation of the full problem, and in
