So optical waveguides, mems mirrors, memory-material targets, and lazers need to be integrated into IC's for this to happen.

Thanks for the link, didn't understand much from the abstract so need to read the paper.

Here are the details that the authors give in their abstract: "We show that, by exploiting different mechanisms for electron–nuclear interaction in the optical pumping process, we are able to control and image the sign of the nuclear polarization as a function of distance from an irradiated GaAs surface. This control is achieved using a crafted combination of light helicity, intensity and wavelength, and is further tuned via use of NMR pulse sequences. These results demonstrate all-optical creation of micron scale, rewritable patterns of positive and negative nuclear polarization in a bulk semiconductor without the need for ferromagnets, lithographic patterning techniques, or quantum-confined structures." http://www.nature.com/ncomms/journal/v3/n6/full/ncomms1918.html

"using laser light to encode the spin-state of atomic nuclei on gallium arsenide chips", i wonder how they achieve this using laser. Is there any link to the paper? I know the conventional approach of encoding the spin on electrons.
