Abstract [en]

The accessibility of molecular self-diffusion coefficients in anisotropic materials, such as liquid crystals or solids, by stimulated-echo-type H-2 PGSE NMR is examined. The amplitude and phase modulation of the signal in the stimulated-echo-type sequence by the static quadrupole coupling during the encoding/decoding delays is suppressed by adjusting the pulse flip angles and the phase cycle. For nuclei that experience both nonnegligible quadrupole and dipole couplings, the application of magic echoes during the evolution periods of stimulated echo is demonstrated as a helpful technique in the case of slow diffusion. These findings are demonstrated by experimental results in the thermotropic liquid crystal of partially deuterated 8CB. The obtained diffusion coefficients are also compared to data obtained by a H-1 homonuclear-decoupling-type PGSE NMR method in the same material.
