This dipole – dipole interaction is averaged out if the paramagnetic molecule is rapidly tumbling in an isotropic environment, as occurs in a normal liquid solution. In this case all orientations are covered with equal probability. Dipole – dipole interaction that is important for solid samples will be considered later. Inside the nucleus the hyperfine field is constant, and it does not depend on the direction. The hyperfine energy contribution Ehf is called the contact (or Fermi) contribution, which is Á E hf ¼ aS I (1:23) where a is a constant (hyperfine coupling constant) that depends on jC(0)j2, the square of the wavefunction that describes the electron motion calculated in the point where the nucleus is.

The electron spin eigenfunctions of Sˆ2 and ^Sz can be written as j1/2, 1/2l and j1/2, – 1/2l. They correspond to those indicated in the previous paragraphs with letters a and b, respectively. The notation with Greek letters is used only for spin 1/2 systems. In quantum mechanics the total energy of a system is associated to an operator called the Hamiltonian operator (H ), which contains all energy terms, and the eigenvalues of which are the quantum allowed energies of the system. Some examples of spin Hamiltonians, their eigenstates, and their eigenvalues are described in the following section.

4a) consists of placing a spin ensemble in a constant magnetic field B0 and irradiating it with microwave radiation of linearly variable frequency and constant intensity. When the frequency matches the resonance conditions for the magnetic field intensity B0, microwaves are absorbed and the absorption is revealed by a microwave detector. The alternative way (Fig. 4b) consists of irradiating the sample with microwave radiation of constant frequency n0 in a magnetic field of linearly variable intensity.
