A method is implemented to perform "fast" adiabatic variation of the spin Hamiltonian by imposing the constant adiabaticity condition. The method is applied to improve the performance of singlet-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) experiments, specifically, for efficient generation and readout of the singlet spin order in coupled spin pairs by applying adiabatically ramped RF-fields. Test experiments have been performed on a specially designed molecule having two strongly coupled 13 C spins and on selectively isotopically labelled glycerol having two pairs of coupled protons. Optimized RF-ramps show improved performance in comparison, for example, to linear ramps. We expect that the methods described here are useful not only for singlet-state NMR experiments but also for other experiments in magnetic resonance, which utilize adiabatic variation of the spin Hamiltonian.
