NMR 'diffraction' in solids
Holger Haas, IQC
Peter Mansfield and Peter Grannell discussed the possibility of NMR crystallography in their 1973 seminal paper 'NMR 'diffraction' in solids?', however, an experimental realisation of NMR 'diffraction' is yet to be demonstrated. I will discuss the feasibility of NMR crystallography in the light of recent advances in nanoscale MRI which combine numerical control finding algorithms and state of the art force detected magnetic resonance techniques.
