2012 Spring-CHEM 550: Special topics in Chemical Physics-Magnetic resonance spectroscopy


Magnetic resonance such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron spin resonance (ESR) can probe the local structure and dynamic properties of various compounds in liquids and solids, making them the most powerful and versatile analytical methods available today. This special topic course will cover principles of magnetic resonance, simulation of ESR spectra of paramagnetic species, spin dynamics in solid and liquid. Various magnetic resonance techniques will be presented: coherent manipulation of spin quantum bits, pulsed ESR to study structure of macrobiological molecule and the next-generation high-field ESR techniques.
