NMR Concepts & Operating Techniques 08

The Fourier Transform

This is undoubtedly the most important course to study if one wants to understand Fourier transform NMR. The most common definition of the Fourier transform appears as a mathematical equation which initially seems mystical and
unintelligible. This chapter will break down that equation into small pieces that when put back together, will make it clear and understandable. The FT of an 8-point NMR signal will be performed using a scientific hand calculator. The FT of a decaying signal will be shown to be consistent with the explanations offered in courses 4 and 5. Additionally, the important effect of pulse width will be examined.

Dr. Traficante obtained his Ph.D. in 1962 from MIT in the field of synthetic organic chemistry. He has worked in the NMR field since 1962, and in the early 1970s he pioneered multi-nuclear instrumentation. He has built probes, reassembled spectrometers, and developed new software programs to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio and the resolution of NMR spectra. His current research in the areas of structure determination, instrumentation, and data processing provide him with knowledge and expertise that are applicable to a broad audience. His organic chemistry background, plus his expertise in electronics, gives his lectures a special depth and appreciation for the field. Dr. Traficante is known throughout the world as an outstanding educator.
