Spin relaxation: under the sun, anything new?
Abstract. Spin relaxation has been at the core of many studies since the early days of NMR, and the undelying theory worked out by its founding fathers. However, this theory has been recently
Unravelling Main- and Side-Chain Motions in Polymers with NMR Spectroscopy and Relaxometry: The Case of Polyvinyl Butyral
The dynamics of the main-chain corresponds to the α-relaxation associated to the glass transition, which was previously characterized by dielectric spectroscopy.
A transportable neutron spin filter
Dynamics of Quantum Information of the Central Spin Problem
Environmental effects on the evolution of a spin system in the context of the central spin problem, have been studied for more than 60 years. With the growing complexity of quantum information
Integrated Broadband Receivers for Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has become an integral part of medical diagnosis because it produces tomographic images without the use of any ionizing radiation. In recent years, array coils,
Engineered impurity-doped materials for Quantum Information Processing applications - nano-structures and disordered materials
In this thesis we explore various ways to extend population lifetimes and coherence times of solid-state emitters. We focus on rare-earth-ion doped host materials and silicon vacancy centers in
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Studies of Electrode and Electrolyte Materials for Li-Ion Batteries
Lithium transition-metal (TM) phosphates LiFexMn1-xPO4 with olivine-type structure are considered one of the most promising next generation lithium ion battery cathodes. While these crystals possess
Modeling alignment enhancement for solid polarized targets
Abstract.A model of dynamic orientation using optimized radiofrequency (RF) irradiation produced perpendicular to the holding field is developed for the spin-1 system required for tensor-polarized
Mechanical Generation of Radio-Frequency Fields in Nuclear-Magnetic-Resonance Force Microscopy
We present an innovative method for magnetic resonance force microscopy (MRFM) with ultra-low dissipation, by using the higher modes of the mechanical detector as radio frequency (rf) source. This
