AbstractThe category of "Laboratory Courses, Projects, Seminars" includes courses and laboratories in various formats designed to impart practical knowledge and skills. Moreover, these classes encourage independent experimentation and design, allow for explorative learning and teach the methodology of project work.
ObjectiveThe phenomenon of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and its application in spectroscopy and imaging will be learned. The course starts with a general introduction to NMR. Afterwards, measurements will be performed on a clinical MRI device. NMR experiments will be developed and programmed by the students themselves. Starting with simple spectroscopic experiments, the basics of imaging are developed step by step. In this way, sectional images of test objects can finally be created.

The course must be cancelled if attendance classes are prohibited.
The course can only be held with a minimum of 2 participants.
