Description

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is a powerful analytical tool for the study of materials. The utility of NMR is derived from the unique information it provides on the physical and chemical structure of the material being studied. The ability to obtain such information as a function of spatial position within the sample makes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) potentially an important technique for the NDE of materials [1]. In general, current MRI instrumentation and techniques limit the study of materials to cases where the observed nuclei are in a liquidlike environment. Even so, reports of imaging liquids in solid materials [2,3] and the soft components of materials [4] have appeared. To date there are few examples of MRI applied to the imaging of the solid components of materials [5].
