Abstract

The method of partial distributions is used to compute the normalized population distribution in an electron-nuclear coupled spin system in which I = S = 1/2. The expressions obtained are more general than those reported previously in that they include the effects of competitive relaxation and competitive radiative induced transition probabilities. It is clear that positive and negative enhancement may be obtained either by the Overhauser or the Jeffries-Abragam effect irrespective of the relative magnitudes of the nuclear Zeeman and hyperfine interaction energies. A small enhancement is not necessarily due to incomplete saturation, but may well be the result of compensating emission and absorption.
