NMR people and equipment in Durham
Follow the links below for more information on the different researchers working in NMR at Durham:
- Dr Paul Hodgkinson
- Prof. Robin Harris (Emeritus)
- Dr David Apperley, Manager of our Solid-State NMR Service (available to UK academics and industry)
The group's principal instrument is a Varian/Chemagnetics InfinityPlus spectrometer operating at 500 MHz (11.7 T). This is a three-channel instrument, with a wide selection of probes, including 2.5 - 7.5 mm magic-angle spinning probes plus some more specialist probes, including a new 1.3 mm MAS probe capable of spinning samples at 65 kHz.
The group shares an older Varian UnityPlus spectrometer operating at 300 MHz (7.0 T) with the Solid-State NMR Service. This is used for routine / time-consuming experiments. We make occasional use of the Service's 400 MHz (9.4 T) instrument.
The group also has access to higher field instruments via collaborations and via UK and EU high-field Facilities (e.g. the 850 MHz Facility at Warwick).
