Abstract : By extending previous work (Phys. Rev. 122:1781 (1961)) to higher fields and frequencies we produced nuclear polarizations as large as 51% for the protons in the waters of hydration in single crystals of lanthanum magnesium nitrate, La2Mg3(NO3)12.24 H2O, in which 1% of La(3+) is replaced by paramagnetic Nd(3+). The energy levels of a Nd(3+) ion of effective spin s = 1/2 and a proton of spin I = 1/2 in a magnetic field H are shown. (Author)
