Nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) is a solid-state radio frequency (RF) spectroscopic technique that allows for the detection of many narcotics and highly explosive substances. Unfortunately, the practical use of NQR is often restricted by the presence of strong RF interference (RFI). In this letter, extending our recent work on stochastic NQR (sNQR), we propose acquiring signal-of-interest free samples, containing only corrupting signals, and exploiting them to reduce the effects of RFI on conventional NQR (cNQR) measurements. Similar to the sNQR case, the presented detectors are able to substantially outperform previous cNQR detectors when RFI is present.
