MR-to-go: NMR- and EPR-on-a-chip make MR spectrometers mobile

Main list: Physics and Astronomy Colloquia

Abstract

Prof. Dr. Jens Anders
University of Stuttgart

The recent availability of the NMR- and EPR-on-a-chip technology, which allows to integrate the entire MR spectrometers electronics and even the detection coil into a single CMOS ASIC (application specific integrated circuit), allows for drastic reductions in the size, complexity and cost of MR spectrometers. Moreover, new detection techniques enabled by the recently proposed voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) based MR detection approach, enable performance boosts both at the very high frequency end (hundreds of GHz for high field EPR) and the very low frequency range (zero field and low field NMR). In this seminar talk, after a short introduction into the basics of MR detection, the new possibilities of the MR-on-a-chip technology both for the realization of new mobile in-situ applications as well high performance MR sensing will be discussed.
