Applications are discussed of a novel NMR device, the NMR MOUSE (mobileuniversalsurfaceexplorer), for characterization of polymers. Different properties of elastomers can be related to an effective transverse relaxation parameterT2eff. Effects of multiecho sequences influence the decay curve and can be described in terms ofB0inhomogeneity and spin-lock effects. Furthermore, the signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) can be improved by use of steady-state free precession (SSFP) pulse sequences modified for use in inhomogeneous magnetic fields.
