Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) laboratories

Equipment in the Liquid State NMR Laboratory

Liquid State laboratory

The liquid state laboratory in Chemistry 2, room 170, houses all of the test equipment and tools necessary to design, construct, troubleshoot and repair RF instruments. Professor Bill Power's chemistry laboratory for sample preparation is available for use. The physics department maintains a machine shop for the students and researchers. There is access to X-ray crystallography and Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) facilities in the chemistry department for solids sample characterization.

NMR systems

  • 700 MHz Bruker Avance 6-channel NMR system with dual inverse cryoprobe, several other commercial probes.
    A 12-spin benchmark on this spectrometer was recently completed.
  • 600 MHz Bruker Avance NMR system.
    This is used for liquid-state quantum information processing work and liquid/solid chemistry studies. HCN, HF, 2.5mm MAS commercial probes.

Solid State laboratory

The Solid State laboratory is found in the Research and Advancement Centre (RAC), room 1124.

  • 300 MHz (wide-bore) Bruker Avance 6-channel NMR spectrometer with home-built probes for solid state NMR Quantum Information Processing (QIP); primarily used for single crystal QIP studies
  • 200 MHz (wide-bore) Bruker Avance 6-channel NMR spectrometer with home-built probes for solid state NMR QIP.
  • Magnet charged to 100 MHz for low-temperature dynamic nuclear polarization experiments.
  • 0 to less than 30 MHz variable field magnet for future studies of coherent hyperfine dynamics/optical magnetic resonance.
  • Two Oxford continuous flow helium cryostat for low-temperature experiments
