Anisotropic diffusion in etched particle tracks studied by field gradient NMR; F. Fujara, E. Ilyina, H. Nienstaedt, H. Sillescu, R. Spohr, C. Trautmann. Magnetic Resonance Imaging, vol. 12, pp. 245-246, (1994).

Etched particle tracks produced after heavy ion irradiation of polymer foils are used as model systems to test the performance of NMR in a newly developed ultrahigh magnetic field gradient system. The stimulted NMR echo decay of molecules diffusing in the channels, formulated in terms of the self part of the intermediate scattering function, is anisotropic and yields the form factor of the channels
