About this book
It is a source of great pleasure to help launch the new Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences. Some years aga I wrote my book, Principles of Magnetic Resonance. I have been eager to publish a new book concerned with spin temperature, double resonance, and spin-flip line narrowing, topics basic to important trends in present-day magnetic resonance which were not treated in my earlier book. Invitations to lecture in Osaka, Japan, in Leuven, Belgium, and Lausanne, Switzerland, had provided occasion to prepare first drafts of the new topics and to get student feedback. My plans were changed, however, when I learned that Principles of M agnetic Resonance was no longer available. Dr. Lotsch, Physics Editor of Springer-Verlag, and I decided it made sense to combine the new book with a modified old one, thereby continuing to make available a complete text in basic magnetic resonance written with a philosophy of presenting a thorough treatment of a small number of concepts which are key to large areas of magnetic res on an ce. In addition to adding three new chapters, I have added new material to the original chapters, have added two new appendices-one on the use of Bloch equations to describe rate processes, the other on the effect of diffusion on spin echoes-and have augmented the collection of homework problems.
