The small magnets contained in the nuclei of the materials studied provide a means to investigate microscopic details of the environment surrounding the nuclei. These very small magnets transmit signals at a resonance frequency determined in the first approximation by the values of a strong externally applied magnetic field. But the detailed shapes, intensities, and time dependence of the transmitted signalsare deter mined by the electric and magnetic fields associated with the local nuclear environment. By interpreting detailed properties we have gained valuable information concerning the coupling in electron-nuclear systems, the local magnetic fields present during molecular collisions in simple monatomic fluids such as xenon, and the fundamental interactions present in the important diatomic fluid, hydrogen.
