We propose a method for detecting the local nuclear spin in semiconductor microstructures using a nuclear magnetic resonance technique that detects the longitudinal magnetization (Mz) of nuclear spins. This technique involves manipulating the nuclear spin by applying a particular sequence of pulsed gradient and homogeneous magnetic fields. By calculating the time evolution of the density operators, we demonstrate that the local change in magnetization can be extracted from the change in the magnetization of the whole system. This technique is suitable for investigating microscopic semiconductor systems with a multinuclear spin of I>1/2.

    Results of studies of non-stoichiometric CuInS2 semiconductor by 63Cu and 115In nuclear magnetic resonance are presented. It was established that deviation of the composition from stoichiometry causes a quadrupolebroadened region of the NMR spectrum to change most. In this case a central peak...

    Large pulsed magnetic fields up to 60 Tesla are used to suppress the contribution of superconducting fluctuations (SCF) to the ab-plane conductivity above Tc in a series of YBa2Cu3O6+x. These experiments allow us to determine the field H' c(T) and the temperature T' c above which the SCFs are...

    It is found that over a wide range of temperatures and magnetic fields even a small concentration of magnetic impurities in a sample leads to a T[sup -1] temperature dependence of the nuclear heat capacity. This effect is due to nuclear spin polarization by the magnetic impurities. The parameter...
