The center provides access to equipment for high resolution and solid state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), as well as imaging, for studies on several topics, ranging from material science, diffusion, studies of small organic or inorganic molecules, to advanced studies of biomolecular structure and dynamics. The magnetic field strength varies between 200 – 600 MHz 1H frequency.

Services provided

The center provides access to equipment for high resolution and solid-state high-field NMR, as well as imaging. For unexperienced users, expert help and advice can be obtained from the Facility manager, who in certain cases also will design experiments, run the experiments, and help analyse the data. All data are generated, stored, and transferred locally.

Management of the infrastructure

The center is managed by Facility manager Göran Carlström, in association with professor Mikael Akke, professor Daniel Topgaard, and professor Ola Wendt.

Terms of access:

Users from outside the immediate research groups can get access to the equipment, either to run experiments themselves, or to get advice and help from the Facility manager. In general, there is a charge for using the equipment, and also for scientific advice. There are different fees for external commercial users, and for users from LTH or the Natural science faculty.
