Unformatted text preview: Pulsed NMR Experiments in Modern Physics (P451) Nuclear magnetic resonance has a wide range of applications from studying the intrinsic properties of materials to medical imaging. Bloch and Purcell were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1952 “for their discovery of new methods for nuclear magnetic precision measurements and discoveries in connection therewith.” You will explore these methods in this lab. Introduction A detailed introduction to NMR appears in the TeachSpin manual (available on the course website and at the experiment station). Some familiarity with the physical concepts is essential before trying to understand the function of the instrument. Equipment • TeachSpin PS1-A spectrometer: a pulse generator, oscillator, detector electronics, and amplifier all wrapped into one unit • dipole magnet • sample probe placed in the magnet • various samples: mineral oil, water, water with different solutes, teflon, ... • calibration loops • two-channel storage oscilloscope Magnet Startup and Shutdown An operating manual for the magnet control system is available on top of the magnet. Below is a briefAn operating manual for the magnet control system is available on top of the magnet....
