To commemorate its 80th anniversary, the Journal of Chemical Physics selected 80 articles published in the Journal over the past 80 years as highlights in chemistry research. Among those selected was a paper published in 1973 for which Alex Pines of the Materials Sciences Division was the lead author. The paper, titled “Proton-enhanced NMR of dilute spins in solids,” described how the NMR signals of dilute nuclear spins in solids could be enhanced by repeatedly transferring polarization from a more abundant species to which they were coupled. The corresponding author was the renowned chemist John Stewart Waugh of MIT.
