Short summary
Diffusion-ordered spectroscopy (DOSY) seeks to distinguish between the NMR signals of chemical species of different sizes, using experimental measurements of spectra with different diffusion weighting. This paper examines how the signal-to-noise ratio of the experimental data influences the ability to distinguish small differences in diffusion coefficient between species.
