The nuclear magnetic relaxation process is an ensemble of phenomena by which an assembly of nuclei returns to the equilibrium distribution appropriate to B0 after the r.f. field B1 has been turned off. The same phenomena are responsible for the establishment of the equilibrium magnetization when a sample (assembly of nuclei) is first placed in a static magnetic field B0.
