Research Group: Magnetic Resonance
Magnetic resonance is a phenomenon that occurs when materials are placed in a strong magnetic field and exposed to radiowaves. It is often encountered in the medical context, where it is known as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Currently Active: Yes
Magnetic resonance is the most widely applicable form of spectroscopy with applications ranging from materials science to clinical medicine. Our magnetic resonance research employs quantum theory, numerical simulations, magnetic resonance experiments and chemical insights to design new magnetic resonance techniques, which are applied to problems in chemistry, biology, physics, and medicine. We have many local and international collaborations, including groups in Cambridge, Nottingham, Warwick, St Andrews, Copenhagen, Tallinn, New York, Philadelphia and Kyoto.
At the Magnetic Resonance Research Group our interests are:
- development of magnetic resonance methodology, especially at low temperatures
- the magnetic resonance of solid materials, including superconductors
determination of biomolecular structures by magnetic resonance, especially in the solid state
- development of new methods for enhancing magnetic resonance signals
- development of new agents and methods for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
A three-dimensional distribution of magnetic shielding tensor field generated by a C70 fullerene cage
- Research on magnetic resonance
