Mobilizing magnetic resonance

From iPods to space probes, technological progress is driven by the mantra “smaller, faster and cheaper”. Yet for the past few decades one of the best known techniques in physics – nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy – has followed a different principle: bigger is better. In order to detect the tiny magnetic moments of nuclei, …

Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media: Recent Progress

Recent years have seen significant progress in the NMR study of porous media from natural and industrial sources and of cultural significance such as paintings. This paper provides a brief outline of the recent technical development of NMR in this area. These advances are relevant for broad NMR applications in material characterization. Song, Yi-Qiao, et al. “Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media: Recent Progress.” The …

Mobile Single-Sided NMR

The development of NMR instrumentation, methods, and applications of mobile NMR, with particular attention to single-sided NMR is discussed. Inside-out NMR is a form of single-sided or unilateral NMR, where an NMR sensor much smaller than the object is placed near the object to acquire signals from the object volume near the sensor. Mobile NMR …
