NMR spectroscopy applied to materials science

Our research is on NMR spectroscopy applied to studying dynamic processes in the solid and liquid state. Specifically we perform temperature- and magnetic field-dependent NMR measurements to study exchange and dynamic processes in interesting material and biological systems. Current projects include:

a) Left; NMR spectrum of intact cancer cells, right classification of cells using NMR spectra

(b) Images of magnetic nanowires formed from single stranded DNA, (c) Nanocrystalline conducting polymers.
