|def: Part of an NMR instrument that detects the signals emitted from a sample. No single probe can perform the full range of experiments, and probes that are designed to perform more than one type of measurement usually suffer from performance compromises. The probe represents a rather fragile “single point of failure” that can render an NMR system completely unusable if the probe is dropped or otherwise damaged. Probes are usually characterised by Sample diameter and Frequency.
altdef: The instrument that transmits and recieves radiofrequency to and from the NMR sample.|
