1) Larmor Frequency

Nuclei that have the characteristic of spin have a nuclear magnetic moment  as a result of their spin. The magnetic moment  interacts with an applied magnetic field denoted Bo. The magnetic moment  precesses about Bo with a frequency known as the Larmor frequency

2) Nuclear Overhauser Effect (NOE)

Allows determination of which nuclei are close together in space. It is a change in ...

Solution Summary

The key advanced NMR definitions are discovered. The Larmor Frequency and nuclear overhauser effects are analyzed.
