CHEM8028 Spin Dynamics
Aims and Objectives
Background to the theory and applications of liquid and solid state NMR and ESR techniques.
Having successfully completed this module you will be able to:
- Understanding of the theoretical models of NMR and ESR experiments.
- Knowledge of spin relaxation theory and its use in structure determination.
- Understanding of the rotational properties of anisotropic spin interactions.
- Understanding of principles behind the simulation and interpretation of NMR / ESR data.
• Secular approximations • Perturbative relaxation theories • Correlation functions and spectral densities • Average Hamiltonian theories • NMR / ESR experiment simulation – liquid state • NMR / ESR experiment simulation – solid state • Fokker-Planck equations and related theories
