Magnetic Resonance

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a powerful tool to probe the structure of compounds important for biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, and energy. The techniques rely upon high-field magnets and microwaves of various frequencies to probe the magnetic fields at the nucleus, revealing the details of the configuration of the sample. The PSFC's Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory is a world leader in the development and use of this technique, contributing to knowledge in a variety of fields.

The Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory is a collaborative research facility whose research covers all aspects of magnetic resonance that are important for structural biology and many areas of magnetic resonance imaging.
