Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article we report a detailed and understandable analysis of the evolution of various coherence orders in a Correlated 2D spectroscopy Revamped by Asymmetric Z-gradient Echo Detection (CRAZED) like pulse sequence, used to select a signal from intermolecular Multi Quantum Coherences (iMQCs). Because the signal to-noise-ratio of iMQC is much lower than the signal from conventional single quantum coherence (SQC), an optimization of experimental parameters is a necessity when measurements are made with iMQC. For this purpose a phase cycle is shown that not only allows a simpler selection of a particular quantum coherence order, but also removes receiver artifacts.
