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

Professor Marcel Utz

Professor of Magnetic Resonance

Research interests

  • Marcel’s main focus lies on the integration of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip technology with NMR spectroscopy and imaging. His group believe that there is great potential for NMR in the context of LoC devices, due to its versatility, resolution, and non-invasive nature, which make it an ideal tool to study complex living systems.
  • In addition, they are also interested in the behaviour of complex materials. Recent examples of this include polyelectrolyte hydrogels and brick-and-mortar type micro-composites.

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