A Conceptual Introduction to Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)
TeachSpin, in collaboration with Professor Bill Melton of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, has developed THE experiment to introduce sophomore, junior, or even senior physics majors to the exciting field of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). This new equipment allows students to perform experiments that naturally lead them to an understanding of precession, Curie's Law of paramagnetism, spin-lattice relaxation and even spin-spin coupling. The apparatus lends itself to inquiry based explorations. Its adjustable variables and magnetic resonance signals are all on a human scale. That is, the polarization times are in seconds, and precession frequencies are in the audio range. This significantly enhances the students' connection to the laboratory experience. TeachSpin's Earth's Field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) instrument is rapidly becoming a "new classic," replacing the old, enigmatic marginal oscillator.
