Distribution of NQR relaxation times in the rotating frame of reference in micro-sized crystallites



This article presents the results of an experimental study into the effect of powder crystallite size on spin-lattice relaxation times in a rotating frame for 35Cl NQR in potassium chlorate, as well as the nutation interferograms. To obtain the distribution of relaxation times, a multi-exponential decay inversion of the longitudinal component of the nuclear magnetization in a rotating frame was used. The multimodal nature of distributions is explained by the influence of surface irregularities and impurities.
