529-0443-01LAdvanced Magnetic Resonance Information 6 credits3GB. H. Meier, M. Ernst
AbstractThe course is for advanced students and covers selected topics from magnetic resonance spectroscopy. This year, the lecture will introduce and discuss the theoretical foundations of Magnetic Resonance in the solid-state.
ObjectiveThe aim of the course is to familiarize the students with the basic concepts of modern high-resolution solid-state NMR. Starting from the mathematical description of spin dynamics, important building blocks for multi-dimensional experiments are discussed to allow students a better understanding of modern solid-state NMR experiments. Particular emphasis is given to achiving high spectral resolution.
ContentThe basic principles of NMR in solids will be introduced. After the discussion of basic tools to describe NMR experiments, basic methods and experiments will be discussed, e.g., magic-angle spinning, cross polarization, decoupling, and recoupling experiments. Such basic building blocks allow a tailoring of the effective Hamiltonian to the needs of the experiment. These basic building blocks can then be combined in different ways to obtain spectra that contain the desired information.

Prerequisite: A basic knowledge of NMR, e.g. as covered in the Lecture Physical Chemistry IV, or the book by Malcolm Levitt.
Lecture notesA script which covers the topics will be distributed in the lecture and will be accessible through the web page
