(James A. Ibers et al., "Proton magnetic resonance...)

An isotropic resonance shift of **f to lower applied fields indicates a weak isotropic hyperfine contact interaction .

The general theory of resonance shifts is used to derive a general expression for the second_moment **f of a polycrystalline paramagnetic sample and is specialized to **f .

Field shifts were derived from the mean value of the resonance line , defined as the field about which the first_moment is zero .

One sample , which had been exposed to the atmosphere after evacuation at 375 ` C , showed the presence of adsorbed water ( about 0.3 wt % ) as evidenced by a weak resonance line which was very narrow at room_temperature and which disappeared , due_to broadening , at low_temperature .

The data reported here are either from spectra from which the adsorbed water resonance could easily be eliminated or from spectra of samples evacuated and sealed_off at 375 ` C which contain no adsorbed water .

[ noun ] (physics) a vibration of large amplitude produced by a relatively small vibration near the same frequency of vibration as the natural frequency of the resonating system

Since conventional methods are insensitive at the low_frequencies of these molecular transitions , the paramagnetic resonance method is being used instead .

The first diatomic hydride investigated by the paramagnetic resonance method was the OH radical .

[ noun ] (music) having the character of a loud deep sound; the quality of being resonant

Used in print

(Howard Nemerov, "Themes and Methods: The Early...)

The horrifying humor , the specifically sexual embarrassment of the joke gone_wrong , the monstrous image of the fat man dressed_up as a whore dressing_up as a baby ; the epiphany of that quivering flesh ; the bringing_together around it of the secret liaison between indolent , mindless sensuality and sharp , shrewd talent , cleverness with an occasional touch of genius ( which , however , does not know `` how to attack the problem of suffering '' ) ; the miraculous way in which music , revelation and death are associated in a single instant - all this seems a triumph of art , a rather desperate art , in itself ; beyond itself , also , it evokes numerous and distant resonances from the entire body of Mann 's work .
