The progression toward small sample volumes for use in high-resolution liquids NMR, solid-state NMR, and MR microimaging is outlined, with an emphasis on the design issues pertinent to scaling sample volumes down to microliters or nanoliters. Distinct advantages of the use of very small sample volumes are mass sensitivity, RF field strength, and MAS spinning speeds.
