We introduce and demonstrate an NMR pulsed gradient stimulated echo method of directly obtaining the molecular translational displacement probability (displacement profile) of a liquid. The temporal development of the displacement profile reflects the presence of diffusion, restrictions to diffusion (e.g., walls, membranes), flow, and spatially dependent(More)
A potential relationship between structural compartments in neural tissue and NMR parameters may increase the specificity of MRI in diagnosing diseases. Nevertheless, our understanding of MR of nerves and white matter is limited, particularly the influence of various water compartments on the MR signal is not known. In this study, components of the (1)H(More)
Development of imaging techniques that would allow the mapping of immune cells in vivo could greatly aid our understanding of a number of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The current study focused on imaging of autoimmune destruction of the insulin-producing pancreatic beta-cells by cytotoxic lymphocytes, the cause of insulin-dependent diabetes(More)
The development of high-resolution magic angle spinning (HR-MAS) NMR spectroscopy for intact tissue analysis and the correlations between the measured tissue metabolites and disease pathologies have inspired investigations of slow-spinning methodologies to maximize the protection of tissue pathology structures from HR-MAS centrifuging damage. Spinning(More)
Bulk susceptibility variations in a multiphase system such as cultured cells and tissue have two manifestations: a dipolar field component outside the regular heterogenous region which introduces linebroadening, and an isotropic field part which results in a frequency shift. Previous NMR studies have emphasized the utility of magic angle spinning for(More)
Thiazolidinediones, a class of synthetic ligands to the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma, induce terminal adipocyte differentiation of 3T3 F442A cells, and have already been used as alternative therapeutic agents for the treatment of liposarcoma in clinical trials. The biochemical changes occurring in the 3T3 F442A cell line and(More)
We present a simplified model for dynamical diffraction of particles through a periodic thick perfect crystal based on repeated application of a coherent beam splitting unitary at coarse-grained lattice sites. By demanding translational invariance and a computationally tractable number of sites in the coarse-graining we show how this approach reproduces(More)
Universal high fidelity coherent control over large Hilbert spaces is essential for quantum information processing to become a useful tool in science, engineering, communications and computation. The development of methods for coherent control are however still in their infancy. In particular, very little is known about the efficiency of quantum control(More)

NMR experiments implementing two-bit controlled-NOT logic gates on alanine (JAB = 35.1 Hz) and 2,3-dibromothiophene (JAB = 5.6 Hz) were performed. Spectra were collected at a variety of tip angles (angles between the spin and the axis of magnetization) by applying a selective RF pulse of constant power and variable duration. From this collection of spectra,(More)
