An NMR spectrometer is described which allows a direct plot of the Knight shift in metals to be recorded. The device uses a wide field range field‐to‐frequency lock unit with the output of the entire spectrometer being directly proportional to the Knight shift. Preliminary results of the field dependence of the Knight shift in aluminum obtained using the spectrometer are given.
