I'm a grad student with no prior experience in pulse programming. Currently I work in rodent MRI. I want to be able to implement some of the sequences I read about in papers and I'd like to know the best way to get started with pulse programming. I read the manual parts on pulse programming and method programming. While the cover the all the syntax,etc. really well they don't really provide any general concepts. For instance, the manual will tell you how to set a delay (e.g. d0 or 1.2u) but not why you should use a particular delay, power level, etc.

The manual don't talk about that because this is the theory part, and so, this discussion is well done in any books of NMR theory.
So, delay and other (pulse shape, pulse phase and so other !) depend on what you would like to do.
