  • Patent number: 5077524
    Abstract: A method for obtaining high resolution NMR spectra without the need for phase cycling includes the application of magnetic field gradient pulses to select specific coherences. By using actively shielded gradients, a gradient pulse is applied during the evolution period of the selected coherence to dephase the transverse magnetization and another gradient pulse refocuses the desired coherences remaining during the acquisition period.
