Hyperpolarized Xenon for NMR and MRI Applications

Hyperpolarized Xenon for NMR and MRI Applications

Article DOI: 10.3791/4268
September 6th, 2012


Summary September 6th, 2012

The production of hyperpolarized xenon by means of spin exchange optical pumping (SEOP) is described. This method yields a ~10000-fold enhancement of the nuclear spin polarization of Xe-129 and has applications in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging. Examples of gas phase and solution state experiments are given.
