Large-scale solid effect DNP experiment simulation.



This function generates its own Liouvillian and should be called directly, without a wrapper.


Computes either the time dependence of the longitudinal magnetization in the system or its asymptotic amplitude. The simulation is performed as described in - this function is optimised for large-scale simulations, but the system must have exactly one electron.


    parameters.mw_pwr      - microwave power in rad/s

    parameters.theory      - level of theory. Set to 'exact' for the electron rotating frame calculation 
                             or to any of the following six options for the average Hamiltonian theory 
                             calculation on top of the electron + nuclear rotating frame: 'ah_first_order',
                             'ah_second_order', 'ah_third_order', 'kb_first_order','kb_second_order',
                             'kb_third_order'. See the description of average.m function and the paper
                             cited above for the meaning of these options.
    parameters.nuclear_frq - nuclear Zeeman frequency in rad/s. This function only supports one nuclear type.

    parameters.calc_type   - set to 'time_dependence' to get the time dependence of the longitudinal magneti-
                             sation and to 'steady_state' to get the asymptotic longitudinal magnetisation.

    parameters.time_step   - if 'time_dependence' is set in the calc_type parameter, sets the time step, seconds.

    parameters.n_steps     - if 'time_dependence' is set in the calc_type parameter, sets the number of time steps.


With the 'time_dependence' calculation type, the function returns the observables detected using the coil states specified at each point in time. With the 'steady_state' option specified, the function returns the steady state values detected using the coil states specified.


The following figure is returned by examples/dnp_solids/solid_effect_timedep_1.m function:

  1. This function is not integrated into Spinach wrapper system.
  2. Only one type of nuclei at a time is supported, but the function can handle a large number - see the paper cited above.
