Author: Brian Cowan
This book provides an introduction to the general principles of nuclear magnetic resonance and relaxation, concentrating on simple models and their application. It includes an introduction to the ideas and applications of nuclear magnetic resonance and emphasizes the concepts of relaxation and the time domain. Some relatively advanced topics are treated, but the approach is graduated and all points of potential difficulty are carefully explained. An introductory classical discussion of relaxation is followed by a quantum-mechanical treatment. A selection of case studies is considered in depth, providing applications of the ideas developed in the text. There are a number of appendixes, including one on random functions. This treatment of one of the most important experimental techniques in modern science will be of great value to final-year undergraduates, graduate students and researchers using nuclear magnetic resonance, particularly physicists, and especially those involved in the study of condensed matter physics.

Written by one of the world's leading NMR research teams, this monograph presents the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy available. In the course of the last two decades, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has undergone a dramatic renaissance, and the authors provide a unified review of the entire field, covering basic principles and techniques for the study of solutions and solids, with emphasis placed on methods of one- and two-dimensional spectroscopy. The material is presented in an intuitive manner, with many illustrations and a rigorous mathematical framework that should satisfy a wide audience.

Since the first publications on the subject in 1973, NMR imaging has grown rapidly and has evolved a wide variety of imaging techniques and systems. This book gives the reader a sound physical understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of the field. Morris explains the basic theory and describes the imaging systems most frequently encountered, including the two- and three-dimensional methods used in commercial systems. Instrumentation and magnet choice and design are fully discussed, and there is an extensive chapter on applications. For medical physicists, NMR imaging researchers, radiologists, clinicians, and scientists and engineers involved in NMR imaging development.

Author: Norman Ramsey
Containing a biography of Nobel laureate, Norman F. Ramsey, this volume also includes reprints and retrospective commentaries on 56 papers relating to spectroscopy with coherent radiation. The earliest papers describe his work with I.I. Rabi, developing the then new magnetic resonance method and its uses to measure magnetic moments of the different forms of hydrogen and to discover the deuteron electric quadrupole moment. Later papers include his invention of the method of coherent separated oscillatory fields, the development of the atomic hydrogen maser and the uses of these methods to measure porperties of nucleons, nuclei, atoms and molecules and to test the parity and time-reversal symmetries. Other papers present the theories of nuclear-magnetic shielding, NMR chemical shifts, electron-coupled nuclear spin-spin interactions and negative absolute temperatures.

Author: Gerald M. Rosen
Free radicals, molecules with unpaired electrons, are highly reactive and play key roles in physiologic regulation and in many degenerative and pathologic processes, making them a fertile area of research. This book focuses on spin trapping, a sophisticated technique for the identification of free radicals in biological systems. The method is complex, and this book offers an in-depth guide to all of the critical aspects needed for its application to free radicals in biology. This includes advice on interpreting results, trouble-shooting, and experimental designs. The book looks at future directions in the field and will prove an invaluable resource for investigators working in the biology of free radicals, regardless of whether they are new or highly experienced in the applications of spin trapping.

Author: Robert C. Smith
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most technically dependent imaging technique in radiology. To perform and interpret MRI studies correctly, an understanding of the basic underlying principles is essential. Understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging explains the pulse sequences, imaging options, and coils used to produce MR images, providing a strong foundation for performing and interpreting imaging studies. The text is complemented by more than 100 figures and 25 photomicrographs illustrating the techniques discussed. Radiology residents, MR technologists, and radiologists should not be without Understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging-the only single resource that explains all technical aspects of MRI, including recent advances, and presents all imaging options.
