PC7CP2d: 2D cross-polarization/2Q excitation POST_C7 pulse program for TopSpin2.1

Home and Applets > Pulse Program > Topspin 2.1, Avance III > 2Q/1Q Correlation > 2D Cross-Polarization POST_C7 Pulse Program
2D CP/2Q excitation with PC7 pulse sequence

Since non-phase cycling is applied to the PC7 excitation pulse, four-phase cycling is applied to the detection pulse P1 for selecting the 0Q -> -1Q coherence order jump, and four-phase cycling is applied to the PC7 reconversion pulse for filtering DQ coherences.

Avoid cross-polarization during POST C7 excitation and reconversion.
