Abstract Title: W45 - Pulsed/CW NMR
Abstract: The technique of nuclear magnetic resonance has revolutionized physics, chemistry, and even medicine since its discovery over 60 years ago. Now students can learn all the features of NMR in an instrument optimized for teaching. TeachSpin's PS2-A is a tabletop system allowing pulsed or continuous-wave investigations of proton (or 19F) NMR within a temperature-stabilized permanent magnet. Students have full control of all the pulse-sequence parameters, and the electrical shimming and scanning of the magnetic field.

Participants will:
-- Learn how pulsed NMR of protons is conducted, and learn pulse nomenclature
-- Optimize a 90-degree pulse, and see free induction decay
-- Optimize field homogeneity by gradient adjustments
-- Learn the pulse sequence needed for nuclear spin echoes
-- Measure either the T1 or the T2 relaxation time in their sample
