High impact information on SPIN3

  • We have prepared combined electron and nuclear spin pseudoentangled states Psi+/-27 and Phi+/-18 out of the total number of eight quantum states in the multilevel quantum system of a nitrogen atom with electron spin 3/2 and nuclear spin 1/2 encaged in the endohedral fullerene (15)N@C(60) [1].
  • In biological tissue, the sodium 23 nucleus exhibits a two-component T2 relaxation due to the spin 3/2 and its quadrupolar nature [2].
  • Spin-3/2 Cr3+ in ruby and spin-5/2 Fe3+ in transferrin oxalate are treated as examples [3].
  • Then ion conducting lithium metal phosphates were studied using 7Li, another spin-3/2 probe which allows for a non-selective excitation of the entire NMR spectrum [4].
  • The generation of pure quadrupolar stimulated-echo spectra is successfully demonstrated for the spin-3/2 probe 9Be in a single crystal of triglycine fluoberyllate [4].
