We present the first direct experimental proof of nCPMG capability to refocus the magnetization at the end of a long echo train. The nutation angle used is small enough (130) to make a large difference between a sequence where realignment is used and a sequence where only stabilization is used. Also measuring the two transverse components insure the third one is also refocused, and that there is truly no initial phase dependence.
