Gradient Echo Sequences - Two pulses

The first excitation and dephasing period produces dephased transverse magnetization, which is turned by the second excitation pulse. The second dephasing period creates a more complicated distribution of transverse and longitudinal magnetization.
Motion of magnetization during two RF pulses and two dephasing periods (initial M = (0,0,1), T1=20TR, T2=10TR, α=50°)
