Exchange: Chemical Exchange Lineshapes

This application calculates the NMR line shapes for chemical exchange for two equivalent sites, Java version*. You can also input your experimental data, so that you can graphically compare with the simulated lineshape, but the experimental data is not needed. An example may help.

Simulation constants:
Line separation with no exchange: Hz
T2, relaxation time with no exchange: sec.
Enter one, but not both of the following parameters for the exchange:
Tau, exchange lifetime: sec.    or   k, exchange rate: sec-1

Experimental data:
Make sure your frequencies are relative to the center of the spectrum. That is, the center of the spectrum should be at 0 Hz.
