Short summary
Resonant pulses in a spin-lock frame are used to select parts of the rf-field distribution in NMR experiments. Such pulses can be implemented in a straightforward way and arbitrarily shaped pulses can be used. We show an application of such pulses in homonuclear decoupling where restricting the amplitude distribution of the rf field leads to improved performance.
