Short summary
We introduce ssNMRlib, a library of pulse sequences and jython scripts for user-friendly setup and acquisition of solids-state NMR experiments. ssNMRlib facilitates all steps of data acquisition, including calibration of various pulse-sequence parameters and semi-automatic setup of even complex high-dimensional experiments, using an intuitive graphical user interface, launched directly within Bruker's Topspin acquisition program.
