At this frequency, a network analyzer reveals that the probe coil has a selfinductance L and a series resistance R due to the selfresistance of the probe and losses within the sample. Looking into the matched probe, the spectrometer must see a real impedance of R at the transition frequency in order to power match the power amplifier and noisematch the receiver preamplifier. As the series resistance R of the probe is less than the characteristic impedance R , the matching network uses the parallelseries configuration in Figure 1. Figure 1: The impedance looking into the parallelseries matching network at the transition frequency o must be R o . 1. (10 points) Find expressions for C p and C s in terms of the parameters L , R , R and . 2. (2 points) Is the parallelseries network useful when R R ? Explain your answer. 3. (8 points) Figure 2 shows a simplified schematic of the spectrometer during measurement of the nuclear reso nance signal v nr ( t ). Find an expression for the transfer function from the induced signal V nr ( s ) to the input voltage V i ( s ) across the preamplifier input, and place your answer in the standard form V i (...
