A DNP-hyperpolarized solid-state water NMR MASER: observation and qualitative analysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present observations of an NMR MASER (microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) of hyperpolarized 1H nuclei by dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) at 1.2 K and in a magnetic field of 6.7 T. The sustained maser pulses originate from the interplay between radiation damping (RD) due to the large 1H magnetization, and the remagnetization to a negative value by the DNP process. NMR signals lasting for several tens of seconds are thus observed on an ensemble of dipolar-coupled nuclear spins. Magnetization dynamics are analyzed in terms of the combined Bloch–Maxwell and Provotorov (BMP) equations for RD and DNP. Insight into the long time evolution of the magnetization is provided by a theoretical analysis of this nonlinear dynamical system, and by fitting the NMR signal to a simplified version of the BMP equations.
