Physics Question #731

Richard Allan, a 42 year old male from Calgary asks on March 30, 2002,

I am looking for information on the molecular level electromagnetic resonance frequency of various elements: gold, iron, aluminum, helium, etc. Has someone done the work to map out the exact resonance frequencies of single atoms of the various elements, and where can I find this information?

Michael Hayden, a physicist at Simon Fraser University who specializes in the physics of molecules, especially nuclear magnetic resonance, says, "Use google to look up Larmor Frequency." The definition of the Larmor Frequency can be found at the Drusch website, a company that makes NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) equipment.
