Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course aims at enlightening the role of unpaired electron in magnetic resonance spectroscopy covering Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy as well as hyperpolarization techniques such as dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) methodology and to highlight selected applications.
The course will begin with an overview over the fundamentals behind the magnetic resonance of electron spins introducing the resonance phenomenon in general together with related topics such as electronic relaxation and the instrumentational setup of a magnetic resonance spectrometer.
Later, the use of unpaired electrons will be introduced on a wide spectrum of applications ranging from basic spin physics over bioinorganic chemistry to structural biology.
A special emphasis will be on the use of DNP for hyperpolarization, i.e. signal enhancement by in NMR.
