Pulse diagnostics for the four-pulse DEER/PELDOR pulse sequence. This function shows how soft pulses affect the magnetisation of the sample. It is a hypothetical experiment where a soft pulse specified by the user is performed, immediately followed by an ideal pi/2 pulse on all spins followed by infinite-bandwidth time-domain detection.




   parameters.pulse_frq  - frequencies for the four 
                           pulses, Hz

   parameters.pulse_pwr  - power levels for the four
                           pulses, rad/s

   parameters.pulse_dur  - durations for the four
                           pulses, seconds

   parameters.pulse_phi  - initial phases for the four 
                           pulses, radians

   parameters.pulse_rnk  - Fokker-Planck ranks for the
                           four pulses

   parameters.offset     - receiver offset for the time
                           domain detection, Hz

   parameters.sweep      - sweep width for time domain
                           detection, Hz

   parameters.npoints    - number of points in the free
                           induction decay 

   parameters.rho0       - initial state

   parameters.coil       - detection state

   parameters.method     - soft puse propagation method,
                           'expv' for Krylov propagation,
                           'expm' for exponential propa-
                           gation, 'evolution' for Spin-
                           ach evolution function

   H  - Hamiltonian matrix, received from context function

   R  - relaxation superoperator, received from context function

   K  - kinetics superoperator, received from context function


   fids  - four free induction decays that should be apo-
           dised and Fourier transformed


A good case is the first figure produced by examples/esr_solids/soft_4_pulse_deer_2e.m example file, reproduced below.

For the method, start with 'expm', change to 'expv' if the calculation runs out of memory, and use 'evolution' as the last resort.
