The Zeeman interaction is the physical phenomenon underlying the coupling of magnetic moments to magnetic fields. Its effects are detected in the features of spectra of samples taken while the sample is immersed in a magnetic field. Specifically, the features of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra depend strongly on the coupling of nuclear spins to various sources of magnetic field.
