The Knight shiftsK(FrT1) andK(RaPb) have been measured in connection with a systematic study on magnetic moments of (h9/2) n proton states. The Knight shifts were obtained directly by a comparison of precession frequencies and, indirectly, from relaxation times involving the Korringa relation. Good agreement is found among the results from the different methods; the average values areK(FrT1)=(0.89±0.09)% andK(RaPb)=(1.05±0.15)%.
