Magnetic Resonance Physics

Magnetic Resonance Physics

Description

Our group is a mix of physicists and chemists and we research a wide variety of physical and biophysical systems.

Expertise

Our group is a mix of physicists and chemists who research a wide variety of physical and biophysical systems. Our measurements can test fundamental physical theories that relate to dynamics in microemulsions, liquid crystals and polymers. Methods involve Pulsed Gradient Spin Echo (PGSE) NMR, NMR microscopy, and NMR spectroscopy, supplemented by rheometry and light scattering.

Objective

The Magnetic Resonance Physics group have a licenced spin-off company, Magritek, which is licenced to commercialise some of the NMR instrumentation research being developed by this group.

Research Focus

We develop NMR methodologies to study molecular dynamics and molecular organisation in soft matter and porous materials research sometimes called 'squishy physics'.

Past Successes

We are also involved in the design and construction of NMR instrumentation and gradient coils. Magritek, our spin–off company, is licensed to commercialise some research and several ex–group members are now employed there.
