Frequency domain overtone acquisition.




The function performs frequency-domain acquisition at the overtone frequency. Because time-domain overtone spectroscopy is difficult (see http://dx.doi.org/10.1039/C4CP03994G for details), this mode of acquisition is preferable in practice. Simulations assumptions should be set to 'qnmr'.


    parameters.sweep        -  vector with two elements giving the spectrum frequency extents
                               in Hz around the overtone frequency

    parameters.npoints      -  number of points in the spectrum

    parameters.rho0         -  initial state

    parameters.coil         -  detection state

    H                       -  Hamiltonian commutation superoperator

    R                       -  unthermalised relaxation superoperator 

    K                       -  chemical kinetics superoperator


The function returns the populations of the detection state at the frequencies specified.

Relaxation must be present in the system dynamics, or the matrix inverse-times-vector operation performed by the frequency domain detection module would fail to converge. The relaxation superoperator should not be thermalised.
