A pulsed-gate technique with charge sensing is used to measure the singlet-triplet relaxation time for nearly degenerate spin states in a two-electron double quantum dot. Transitions from the (1,1) charge occupancy state to the (0,2) state, measured as a function of pulse cycle duration and magnetic field, allow the (1,1) singlet-triplet relaxation time (≥70μs) and the (0,2) singlet-triplet splitting to be measured. This technique can be readily applied to read out a spin-qubit operating in a singlet-triplet basis.
