Hyperpolarization Update #3 (and now for something completely different)

This is a picture of the first signal we received with the coil. The signal is the regular peaks in the darker color, which correspond to "echoes". When we do more echoes we are able to get information about the chemical environment by looking at how fast they shrink.

This past week was pretty slow on the hyperpolarization side of things, so I directed my energy to a project I’ve been working on since the second semester of my sophomore year: designing a new NMR probe for our magnet. We already have a probe that works, but we want to be able to make […]
