The purpose of this work was to determine a method of measuring the asymmetry parameter of the electric field gradient at the nuclear site in powdered samples. The work was restricted to nuclei having a spin of 3/2. The effect of small magnetic fields on the nuclear quadrupole interaction was observed using an induction spectrometer (crosscoil spectrometer). The cross-coil spectrometer was used because, like the marginal oscillator, it promises to give faithful representation of the derivative of the absorption mode line shape, while providing a greater sensitivity than the marginal oscillator.
