A Time Domain NMR-based method for determining the bound water content in frozen soils
•A NMR-based method is proposed for determining the bound water content in soils. •Freezing/thawing hysteresis is characterized and possible mechanisms for the hysteresis are identified. •Unfrozen pore water content is calculated for soils in freezing/thawing cycles.

NMR Sequence—CPMG Sequence
Although FID experiment is useful for setting upNMR instrumentation, it has some disadvantages. The main disadvantage is that the decay constant (or shape) of data acquired with FID is affected not only by the sample properties, but also the homogeneity (or uniformity) of the magnetic field over the sample. Most scientists are only interested in...
In benchtop nmr experiments, there are two main relaxations, spin-lattice relaxation and spin-spin relaxation. The following figure is the recovery curve of T1 and T2. Fig 1: T1 recovery curve and T2 recovery curve Spin-lattice relaxation is also called longitudinal (or T1) relaxation. T1 is a time that suggests the speed of spin-lattice relaxat...
Basis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) Imaging Directions
Samples during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) experiments, the first question to consider is to determine the direction of three related imaging: selected layer direction (G Slice I), phase encoding direction (G Phase I) and the frequency-encoding direction (G Read I) In Fig 1, we can see relationship between orthogonal coordinates and the dir...
