Abstract

Optimal control theory is applied for enhancing the intensity of the central peak of a spin 3/2 signal in the presence of a residual quadrupolar coupling. While a maximum enhancement is always possible in the regime ωrf ωQ via the use of modulated and shaped pulses, the intermediate rf-power regime ωrf ∼ ωQ does not admit simple solutions based on intuition. In this work we present optimized shaped pulses that have been derived using an optimization algorithm based on optimal control and test these with 23Na NMR in this regime. In addition to enhancing the intensity of the central transition signal, the satellite peaks can be effectively suppressed, which is a useful feature for the implementation in 23Na imaging sequences.
