Continuous-Wave (CW) Spectrometer

Continuous-Wave (CW) Spectrometer Definition:

An NMR spectrometer that holds the magnetic field constant and slowly sweeps through a range of rf frequencies, monitoring which frequencies are absorbed.

Continuous-Wave (CW) Spectrometer Explained:

The method of spectroscopy of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is measured to determine the structure of organic compounds. Out of all the spectroscopy, it is the most effective in resulting in the complete analysis of the spectrum. The method involves the study of the nuclei isotopes and the characteristics of their spin. For example some nuclei have integral spins ( e.g.= 1, 2, 3 etc.) some have fractional spins ( 1/2, 3/2, 5/2…) and some have no spins.
