Principles of dynamic nuclear polarisation

  title={Principles of dynamic nuclear polarisation},
  author={Anatole Abragam and Maurice Goldman},
  journal={Reports on Progress in Physics},
After a general introduction, two sections are devoted to a survey of the theories of spin temperature and of nuclear relaxation in solids. This is followed by a short section on the so-called well-resolved solid effect, and a much more detailed one on DNP by thermal mixing in the non-linear low spin-temperature domain. One then analyses the various methods of measurement of the nuclear polarisation, as well as an indirect method of detecting the electronic resonance based on the existence of… 
Recent developments in low-temperature nuclear orientation
A review is given of the techniques associated with low-temperature thermal equilibrium nuclear orientation, detected using nuclear radiations. Following an introductory section that includes a
Theoretical Aspects of the Cross Effect Enhancement of Nuclear Polarization under Static Dynamic Nuclear Polarization Conditions.
This study performs quantum calculations of the spin dynamics of a small spin system that includes nine coupled electrons and one nucleus placed in an external magnetic field and exposed to microwave irradiation to demonstrate the dynamics of the electron polarizations composing the EPR line during static dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) experiments.
Dynamic Nuclear Polarization in Solids: The Birth and Development of the Many-Particle Concept
A brief review is presented on historical aspects of the dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) research in 1960–1970s of the last century. Much attention is given to development of the many-particle
Dynamic nuclear polarization: Yesterday, today, and tomorrow
A review is given of the history and basic principles of dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) in condensed matter, starting from the Overhauser pioneering work and up to the modern applications in
Dynamic nuclear polarisation via the integrated solid effect I: theory
In the hyperpolarisation method known as dynamic nuclear polarisation (DNP), a small amount of unpaired electron spins is added to the sample containing the nuclear spins and the polarisation of
Progress in DNP theory and hardware
Dynamic nuclear polarisation is a technique that allows one to increase the signal-to-noise ratio in an NMR experiment substantially, by transferring the inherently larger electron polarisation to
Spin Thermometry: A Straightforward Measure of Millikelvin Deuterium Spin Temperatures Achieved by Dynamic Nuclear Polarization.
It is shown that the lineshapes due to the quadrupolar couplings of deuterium spins present in virtually all solvents used for such experiments ('DNP juice') allows the quick yet accurate determination of thedeuterium spin temperature or, equivalently, theDeuterium polarization.
