Magnetic Resonance (NMR)

Magnetische Kernresonanz / Broadline nuclear magnetic resonance

Ansprechpartner: Dr. Michael Baenitz


the NMR group (established 2000): eguipment, NMR-people and topics - per September 2015 - a summary

members (per September 2015): H. Yasuoka (emeritus) M. Majumder (PostDoc)

Ligand (31P, 63,65Cu, 119Sn, 23Na, 99,101Ru, 29Si, 139La, 121,123Sb, 75As, 195Pt) and on-site (171Yb, 59Co, 57Fe, 55Mn,...) NMR-investigation of 4f-, 5f-, and d- intermetallics and oxides with unconventional magnetism and/or superconductivity.

The main targest are

i) correlated 4f- and 5f systems

ii) 3d based correlated systems

iii) Quantum magnets with main focus on SOC effects and non centrosymmetric structure (chiral magnets and 4d/5d quantum magnets) 

iiii) Dirac(Weyl) magnets: NMR as a local probe for Dirac (Weyl) fermion magnetism 

NMR probes the local spin susceptibility at the NMR nucleus site via the NMR shift. The NMR shift is a tensor reflecting the local magnetic anisotropy at the nucleus site arising from anisotropic- (dipolar and orbital (p-,d- & f- electrons)) and isotropic- (Fermi contact (s electrons)) hyperfine interactions. The spin lattice relaxation rate probes fluctuations of the transfered hyperfine field originating from the (unstable) 4f-, 5f- or 3d magnetic ion (related to the q-dependent imaginary part of the complex dynamic susceptibility)

Broadline field sweep NMR with a very broad range of accessible frequencies (1-500 MHz) enables multinuclear resonance (detection of various NMR sensitive nuclei with field sweeps up to 14 T).
Fourier Transform (FT) NMR.
High Resolution FT NMR (Bruker 400 MHz, Bruker 500MHz)
