Magnetic resonance

Our group explores ways to extend the timescale over which we can create magnetic resonance. A theme of the group is the integration of magnetic resonance methods into microfabricated lab-on-a-chip devices.

About

Magnetic resonance is a phenomenon that occurs when materials are placed in a strong magnetic field and exposed to radio waves. It is often encountered in the medical context, where it is known as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The group strives to develop new techniques to make nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) even more widely applicable. Our main focus is finding ways to extend the timescale over which magnetic resonance can be made.

A theme of the group is the integration of magnetic resonance methods into microfabricated lab-on-a-chip devices. We are also developing new methods to investigate complex functional materials such as:

  • catalysts
  • superconductors
  • fullerenes
  • metal-organic frameworks

My twin joys are magnetic resonance and endofullerenes: both topics bring one into direct contact with the quantum world.
