Nuclear Magnetic Resonance with Low Magnetic Fields

Jülich researchers increase sensitivity of NMR measurements with new receiver

Jülich, 20 July 2015 – A tiny component which amplifies measurement signals and suppresses noise is presented by Jülich and Aachen researchers in the current issue of Nature Physics. They developed it for nuclear magnetic resonance measurements in battery research. The method is typically used for imaging techniques in medicine (MRI) or the analysis of molecular structures in biology and chemistry (NMR). The receiver permits high sensitivity at low frequencies – without the extremely strong and expensive magnets which are usually required for precise measurements.
