Topic: NQR

In the News (Thu 17 Apr 14)

NQR techniques for the identification of nitrogen-containing explosives depend on the signals generated by 14N nuclei present in the solid material when irradiated with RF radiation in the frequency range 0.5 to 6 MHz.
The NQR frequencies and spectra are specific to a given explosive and provide not only a positive identification of the material but also its quantity.
The main goal of this meeting is to examine the recent advances in the capabilities and features of NQR techniques for the detection of land mines and explosives and to stimulate a strong exchange of knowledge and new ideas between basic research and applications.

 NRL Press Release
NQR is a radio frequency spectroscopy similar to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
The NQR explosives detection approach is conceptually simple: one broadcasts an RF pulse at the particular frequency or frequencies of interest and looks for a return signal with a sensitive radio receiver.
Indeed NQR for landmine detection was explored in the 1970's by the US Army and in the 1980's by the Soviet Army.

The NQR response signal is used to identify nuclei having a quadruple moment in specific chemical environments.
The application of NQR is not limited to this one isotope, as there are many other quadrupolar nuclei that have been used in material identification.
Such an apparatus would be useful in investigating several distinct lines in the NQR response from a substance, whether this is from the broadened bandwidth or the same receiving apparatus coping with an antenna that is tuned to other resonance frequencies, or a multiply tuned receiving antenna.

Because of its immunity to external electrical and magnetic environmental noise, an NQR detection system with the NRL-patented coil does not require external radio frequency (RF) shielding, and would be more practical and suitable for field use.
NQR is an RF spectroscopic technique, related to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
The specimen is irradiated with RF energy at specific frequencies, and the size of the return signal indicates the presence or absence of known explosives and narcotics.

We used the pulse NQR spectrometer with 110 litres coil.Special attention was paid to the construction of the transmitter system which ensures a pulse power of about 5 kW.
Remote NQR method is of great interest for industrial,medical,chemical and biological investigations.The possibility of carrying out quality analyses of solid samples locating at some distance from the spectrometer coil is one of the main advantage.
On the other hand,in TNT the NQR frequencies are considerably lower and the relaxation times are longer,therefore the conditions for detecting NQR signals are very different.For this reason remote sending of NQR signals in TNT pose a very difficult technical problem.

Nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) is a radio frequency technique that is used for characterising the structural chemistry of nitrogen based compounds Rowe and Smith [1], Hibbs et al [2] and Engelbeen [3].
The time domain signature of the NQR response may be free induction decay or a series of echoes in which a time reversed image of the FID response precedes the normal one-sided FID response once the series is established.
The principal characteristics of the NQR signals which can be classified as a non-stationary time series are; an exponential decay, the presence of multiple frequencies, a short time response, an echo series, either causal or non-causal, and most importantly, a low signal to noise ratio.

 Penn State-Led Team Develops New, Improved Land Mine Detector
However, all of these instruments are hampered by the fact that the NQR signal generated by explosives is small, easily drowned out by background noise and has a short duration.
The disturbance in the nitrogen nuclei, in turn, produces a characteristic NQR signal, which is recorded on a graph.
However, unlike the other available NQR-based detectors, Schiano and Ginsberg's new device is equipped with feedback control algorithms that automatically increase or decrease the repetition rate of the RF pulse and quicken or slow the time that elapses between the creation and collapse of the disturbance in the nuclear magnetization.

Cl NQR spectra exhibit one line each at the frequency 35.814 MHz and 28.984 MHz, respectively (the signal to noise ratio for both lines is 10).
Cl NQR parameters with those resulting from RHF/6-31G(d) calculations of the investigated molecules shows that the calculations of the populations of the chlorine atom valence p-orbitals are incorrect.
The incorrectness may be caused by the displacement of the coordinate origin and by the deviation of the symmetry axes of the chlorine atom valence p-orbitals from the directions of the coordinate axes during the calculation process.

We introduce a new nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) method for the detection of spin-1 nuclei, where the transition excited and directly detected is not irradiated at all.
It is demonstrated, theoretically and experimentally, that the irradiation of a powder sample containing spin-1 nuclei by two of the three characteristic NQR frequencies can result in free induction decay (FID) and echo signals at the third NQR frequency.
We present the optimal conditions for such three-frequency NQR experiments and compare theory with experiment using
