Synopsis

Select the relaxation curve type.

Defaults

relax_fit.select_model(model=`exp')

Keyword arguments

model: The type of relaxation curve to fit.

Description

A number of relaxation experiments are supported and include:

The `exp' model. This is the default two parameter exponential fit. The magnetisation starts at I0 and decays to zero. The parameters are [Rx, I0] and the equation is I(t) = I0*exp(-Rx*t).

The `inv' model. This is the inversion recovery experiment (IR). The magnetisation starts at a negative value at -I0 and relaxes to a positive Iinf value. The parameters are [Rx, I0, Iinf] and the equation is I(t) = Iinf - I0*exp(-Rx*t).

The `sat' model. This is the saturation recovery experiment (SR). The magnetisation starts at zero and relaxes to a positive Iinf value. The parameters are [Rx, Iinf] and the equation is I(t) = Iinf*(1 - exp(-Rx*t)).
