Rocking the Boat: Resonance, Excitation, and Relaxation

  • Michael L. Lipton


As we concluded the previous section, a sample of protons was described by its energy configuration, the distribution among energy levels. The magnetization of the sample was shown as the NMV. Nonetheless, we could not measure the NMV because it was so small relative to the static magnetic field B0. This chapter answers the question: How then can we measure the magnitude of magnetization in the sample?
