Hyperpolarization methods can increase nuclear polarization to the order of unity, which corresponds to a sensitivity enhancement of several orders of magnitude with respect to standard NMR techniques based on thermal polarization. In contrast to other hyperpolarization methods like e.g. DNP, PHIP can provide within seconds high degrees of hyperpolarization at moderate experimental conditions and at a relatively low cost per sample. Here we present the application of PHIP to the acquisition of single shot multi nuclear NMR spectrum in the earth magnetic field.
