  • Patent number: 5872452
    Abstract: A gradient magnetic field generator is provided for generating a spatially varying gradient magnetic field for use with a nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy probe having a rotatable sample container. The gradient field generator has a plurality of straight line conductive segments which lie parallel to one another and perpendicular to a plane within which lies a rotation axis about which the sample container rotates. The straight line conductive segments each conduct a current which generates a component of the overall gradient magnetic field. The conductive segments preferably lie in a cylindrical distribution about a stator within which the sample container is rotated. The appropriate currents for the conductive segments may be determined by finding a solution for the Jacobian which defines the magnetic field variations in the three-dimensional space of the stator.

  • Patent number: 5539315
    Abstract: A nuclear magnetic resonance cross polarization probe uses a dual-coil arrangement in which a single-turn inner coil is surrounded by a solenoid coil. The inner coil is tuned to the frequency of a relatively high Larmor frequency nuclei type, such as proton. The solenoid coil is tuned to a lower Larmor frequency nuclei type. An inner sample region surrounded by the inner coil has a first magnetic field component induced by an electrical signal at the relatively high frequency in the inner coil. An electrical signal at the lower frequency is input to the solenoid coil and results in the generation of a magnetic field alternating at the lower frequency. This field induces a current in the inner coil at the lower frequency that, in turn, induces a magnetic field component in the inner region at the lower frequency.
