Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging of solid matter is made difficult by linewidths, which cause resolution and sensitivity problems. However, imaging of solid matter remains attractive because measurement time is less restricted than for many biological samples. 1H imaging of rigid matter requires either the use of strong gradients or application of techniques from solid-state NMR spectroscopy for line narrowing to extend the decay of the transverse signal for the benefit of better spatial resolution and sensitivity. The class of imaging methods defined by using large gradients comprises stray-field imaging, the use of strong oscillating gradients, imaging by pure phase encoding, and multi-quantum imaging. The class of imaging methods defined by the use of line-narrowing techniques comprises magic-angle spinning (MAS) imaging, MAS rotating-frame imaging, imaging with multi-pulse line narrowing, and magic-echo phase encoding.

Keywords:   nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, solid-state spectroscopy, stray-field imaging, oscillating gradients, pure phase encoding, multi-quantum imaging, line-narrowing techniques, magic-angle spinning, magic-echo phase encoding
