In such a case the magnetization performs a precession around the x-direction

Thus the magnetic field in the laboratory frame :
 LAB   0 z   1 cos(  t   ) x   1 sin(  t   ) y
Becomes in the rotating frame:
 RoF    z   1 cos  x   1 sin  y

In NMR we measure
the magnetization
in the rotating frame:
 RoF , y ( t )
Although the signal detection in the laboratory frame is along the direction of the coil:

2d. Necessary concepts for QM description
2d-i complex numbers
A large part of our discussion will deal with precessions of vectors, and with expressions
that need complex numbers. Here we introduce these numbers and give some necessary
rules.
Let us suppose that there are “numbers” that in fact are composed of two numbers:
x  a x  ib x
c
2
i :  1
These complex numbers have their own mathematics based on
imaginary axis

A common practice is to present the values of the
x- and y-components of the magnetization
as if they are one complex number:
y
 xy   x  i  y
x
c
Re
A precessing magnetization around the z-direction has as xy-components the value:
 xy   xy (cos  t  i sin  t )

This can be written as
 xy   xy e

2d-ii Wavefuntions, eigenstates and observables
There is no way of explaining NMR without some Quantum Mechanics:
Here we give rules that can help us to “understand” what we are measuring in NMR.
Because the spin behave according to the theory of QM, the necessary “rules” we need
to proceed are: (We are all used to presenting spectroscopy by
, but why? )
1. A stationary quantum system experiencing a time independent environment (Hamiltonian)
will preside in one of its discrete (constant energy) eigenstates.
A spin-1/2 system, like the proton or an electron, in a magnetic field
B 0 // z
has only two eigenstates with energies according to the z-components of their magnetization
E    z B0  I z  Bo
. The allowed components of the angular momentum are
m
with m   1 / 2 .
The way to present these energies is by an energy level diagram and the eigen states by
E 1 / 2 

E1 / 2  

 0
m  1 / 2

m  1/ 2
. The actual length of the angular momentum is
I 
I,m
:
m is called the
magnetic quantum number
I ( I  1)
but we can only determine its z-component.
1/ 2
I ( I  1)
In fact we do not know what
the phase of its xy- component is.
I ( I  1)

When the spin is in one of these states it is stationary

A symbolic summary

The environment of the spin system is defined by the Hamiltonian:
H   0 I z  2  1 I x cos(  t   )
and in the rotating frame:
H  ( 0   ) I z   1 I x
Here the Hamiltonians H correspond
to magnetic fields Bp in the p-direction
H  I x  Bx   / 
H  I z  Bz   / 
According to the rotation properties of the angular moment operator
The Hamiltonian “rotates” the spin density operator

H   I x   ( 0 )  AI z :  ( t )  A ( I z cos  t  I y sin  t )
The density operator can be
“measured” by calculating “observables”
resulting here in the magnetization {Mp}

This result is like an indication that the classical motion of the magnetization for
a spin-1/2 behaves like the QM result. For spin-1/2 we can use the vector picture
derived before for the magnetization precession around any external magnetic field.
For spins higher than ½ the number of elements of the angular momentum components
becomes larger and we will have to show that these components also result in a
precession motion of its classical magnetization.
For further reading about QM, take any book on an “Introduction to Quantum Mechanics”
The transverse components of the bulk magnetization can only become zero when all individual
spins behave the same and there is no phase-scrambling. Thus, when we manipulate the
spins simultaneously in an equal manner, the bulk magnetization behaves like a single spin.
Just as we described the motion of a single spin in the laboratory and rotating frame,
we can present the bulk magnetization in the lab and rotating frame.

2e T1 and T2 Relaxation
The return of the bulk magnetization to thermal equilibrium is governed by thermal motions.
We distinguish between two mechanisms, th0e dephasing of the transverse component
with a typical time constant T2 and the buildup of the longitudinal component to thermal
equilibrium with a time constant T1.

A simplistic way of understanding the action of the T1 and T2 relaxation mechanisms is to consider
thermally fluctuating magnetic fields in the laboratory frame. These fields will rotate the individual
components of the magnetization and a dephasing process will decrease the magnitude of the
transverse magnetization and Increase the longitudinal magnetization towards equilibrium.
The interaction of the spins their thermal bath will results in a Boltzmann population of their spin levels.
That there is a difference between the two relaxation times can be understood by realizing that the
individual magnetizations are precessing around the external magnetic field. To influence the direction
of the z-magnetizations the small fluctuating fields must be constant for a sufficient time. To influence
the phases of the xy-magnetizations the fluctuating field must be have components that vary at the order
of the Larmor frequency. For a randomly fluctuating field in the lab. frame
