We introduce a novel interpolation strategy, based on nonequispaced fast transforms involving spherical harmonics or Wigner functions, for efficient calculations of powder spectra in (nuclear) magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The fast Wigner transform (FWT) interpolation operates by minimizing the time-consuming calculation stages, by sampling over a small number of Gaussian spherical quadrature (GSQ) orientations that are exploited to determine the spectral frequencies and amplitudes from a 10-70 times larger GSQ set. This results in almost the same orientational averaging accuracy as if the expanded grid was utilized explicitly in an order of magnitude slower computation. FWT interpolation is applicable to spectral simulations involving any time-independent or time-dependent and noncommuting spin Hamiltonian. We further show that the merging of FWT interpolation with the well-established ASG procedure of Alderman, Solum and Grant [J. Chem. Phys. 134, 3717 (1986)] speeds up simulations by 2-7 times relative to using ASG alone (besides greatly extending its scope of application), and between 1-2 orders of magnitude compared to direct orientational averaging in the absence of interpolation. Demonstrations of efficient spectral simulations are given for several magic-angle spinning scenarios in NMR, encompassing half-integer quadrupolar spins and homonuclear dipolar-coupled (13)C systems.
