Spin and Magnetic Resonance



Brief introduction of spin formalism. Spin and magnetic moment. Pauli equation, describing behavior of spin in magnetic field. Motion in constant field B0.Principle of magnetic resonance: combination of large constant field B0 with small field B1(t), rotating in the plane perpendicular to B0. Motion of spin in a coordinate system which rotates with B1 (and in which the total field is constant) and in a coordinate system which is at rest in the laboratory. At resonance the direction of the spin expectation value is completely inverted. Rabi formula describing the resonance form.
