Abstract:

The article describes a method of measuring the earths magnetic field the method is based on a free nuclear precession which takes place during a continuous dynamic polarization of protons of an aqueous solution of potassium nitrodisulfonate K2NOSO32. The precession of the nuclear magnetization begins after the latter has rotated by an angle of approx. pi2 in relation to the field to be measured this rotation can be effected by a sharp impulse from an auxiliary magnetic field. Given are experimental results obtained by a study on a laboratory model which provided two readings per second. Author
