We demonstrate that proton NMR noise signals, i.e. NMR spectra without excitation by radio frequency, can be obtained from solid samples. Experimental results are shown for static and magic-angle spinning conditions. In addition, a tuning procedure based on the probes' NMR noise characteristics and similar to the one described previously for liquids probes can also be used to optimize signal-to-noise ratios in 1H-MAS experiments.
