Abstract

original image

Better images: A highly sensitive approach for imaging insensitive nuclei, such as silicon-29, using magnetic resonance is presented (see picture, right). Two-dimensional images of natural-abundance silicon-containing solid materials can now be obtained in a reasonable time.
