nuclear magnetic resonance

n
(General Physics) a technique for determining the magnetic moments of nuclei by subjecting a substance to high-frequency radiation and a large magnetic field. The technique is used as a method of determining structure. Abbreviation: NMR See also electron spin resonance

nuclear magnetic resonance

The absorption of energy (as specific frequencies of radio waves) by the nuclei of atoms that are placed within a strong magnetic field. Because certain atoms absorb specific frequencies, nuclear magnetic resonance is used to analyze substances in spectroscopy and to examine soft body tissues in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
