Homework Help: Hyperfine Interaction

  1. Jun 19, 2010 #1
    my name is Artemis. These days I study at University of Science and Technology in Cracow. Due to the fact that semester is almost over one of my tutors asked me to do a quick presentation about "Ways of measuring hyperfine interactions". I would appreciate it a lot if anyone of you could help me with this subject by just by mentioning me the ways how to do it, as I need to write about 6 methods and I can't find even one. Please help me.

    Thank you in advance,

    Have you tried Wikipedia as a starting point?

    Yes, I did. But I didn't find anything useful.

    You could ask your tutor to suggest a source, a book or journal papers perhaps could help.

    Off the top of my head, look into nuclear magnetic resonance, nuclear quadrupole resonance, electron paramagnetic resonance and Mossbauer spectroscopy to start with.

    Here is a quote from wikipedia:

    "Hyperfine interactions can be measured, among other ways, in atomic and molecular spectra and in electron paramagnetic resonance spectra of free radicals and transition-metal ions"

    So you can begin researching all of those methods as well as on top of what kuruman has said. And NMR is a very popular method which kuruman listed.
