Larmor equation

An MRI term for a formula for which the frequency of precession of the nuclear magnetic moment is directly proportional to the product of the magnetic field strength (Bo) and the gyromagnetic ratio (g), as in the equation, å = g x Bo.

where [omega]L = e/m[gamma] H is the frequency of Larmor precession, g is gyromagnetic ratio, and [gamma] = (1 - [[beta].
There are inevitably stray fields within the "zero-field" gaps that give rise to unwanted Larmor precession around the local stray field direction.
For the cancellation of the Larmor precession with the pseudomagnetic precession, we need to know the value of the pseudomagnetic field.
In fact, the presence of two species undergoing Larmor precession makes available a wide range of double resonance techniques, well known from NMR practice.
Unfortunately, the (PC) Larmor precession of a typical cold neutron (5 [Angstrom]) due to the Earth's magnetic field is approximately 10 rad/m, while [[phi].
The observed visibility of the interference between upward and downward spin components perpendicular to the Larmor precession plane of the neutron spin are compared with the numerical simulations in the plane wave theory and also in the Schrodinger wave-packet model.
