Quantum mechanical calculation of Suryan’s line broadening in nuclear magnetic resonance
The first quantum theory of the classical radiation damping in nuclear magnetic resonance is presented. Relaxation times and life times arising from the interaction of nuclear spin with the radio-frequency radiation field are calculated. Second-order line shifts are predicted and the existence ofIz andIz2-type operators due to photons is pointed out. The predicted line shifts as well as relaxation are found to be measurably large. Numerical estimates are given for protons in water.
