Abstract

Using a low transition temperature superconducting quantum interference device as a detector, we have obtained magnetic resonance images of laser-polarized 3He gas and solid 129Xe at 4.2 K in magnetic fields as low as 0.54 mT (3He) and 1 mT (129Xe), corresponding to Larmor frequencies of 17.6 and 11.8 kHz, respectively. The experimental resolution of the images is ∼500μm for 3He in the gas phase and ∼950μm for 129Xe in the solid state.
