The Influence of the Skin Effect on the Amplitude of Single Pulse Gamma Detected NMR on Oriented Nuclei Signals

Abstract

The effects of skin depth on gamma detected single pulse Nuclear Magnetic Resonance on Oriented Nuclei (NMRON) signals are theoretically explored for narrow, intermediate and broad line metallic samples, using the density matrix approach describing a pure Zeeman system. It is shown that the skin effect distortion of the signal can dominate over intermediate to broadline distortions for that range of experimental conditions generally applicable to ferromagnetic hosts. In particular, the skin effect distortions of the first maximum, obtained when the excitation pulse width is lengthened, are significant and can determine the accuracy of calibration of the radiofrequency "(rf)" field amplitude at the resonating nuclei when assigning an average turn angle to this maximum.
