Shaped Pulses for Selective Excitation
Short rectangular pulses have broad excitation profiles (see BLOG entry for November 20, 2007) and are used for non-selective uniform excitation. These are often called "hard" pulses. Longer low power shaped pulses are used to excite specific spectral regions for selective excitation. An example of this is shown below.These are often called "soft" pulses.
