Sensitivity-enhanced benchtop NMR spectroscopy
Dr M E Halse
Applications accepted all year round
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is powerful analytical technique with routine applications throughout the chemical and physical sciences.
Quantum Phase Transitions Driven by Quantum Fields
Dr M Hartmann
8 February 2019
Quantum phase transitions describe dramatic changes in the properties of a quantum many-body system. An example is a ferromagnet that becomes a paramagnet as the strength of an applied magnetic field is increased beyond a threshold value and the spins in the magnet align to it.
Innovative applications for radiofrequency heating
Dr J Fernandez-Garcia
25 January 2019
Recently radiofrequency heating has been successfully used in fine chemistry and pharmacy considering the main advantages of avoidance of hot spots, very high heat transfer rate from inside out and easy separation of magnetic catalysts by external magnet.
Evaluating the benefits and challenges of ultra-high field (11.7T) for magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy
Prof R Bowtell, Prof D Auer, Prof P Gowland, Dr P Glover
25 February 2019
High magnetic field strength offers great benefits for magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, providing improved spatial and temporal resolution, greater sensitivity to physiological changes - particularly for functional brain imaging - and access to new contrasts, such as those based on chemical exchange saturation transfer and magnetic susceptibility.
