Paper Abstract

Superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) are the most sensitive detectors of magnetic fields yet devised. We have used a SQUID-based system to detect nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in several room-temperature samples. The results demonstrate that SQUID- detected NMR can be used to distinguish chemical differences between substances. The results also illustrate the broader potential of SQUID NMR for detecting specific materials in situations where conventional NMR is impractical.
