We are developing experimental technologies and instruments for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Ultra-high magnetic fields produced by high-temperature superconductors leads to higher NMR sensitivity and resolution. We are working to enhance the performance of the spectrometer to accommodate higher magnetic fields and frequencies. A higher magnetic field will yield more advantages. We will develop new techniques for detecting the structure and movements of molecules as well as develop new types of magnets and detection probes enabling analyses of wider range of samples and conditions.
