[NMR] Course on \”Dissolution Dynamic Nuclear Polarization\” November 13-15, 2013 at EPFL, Switzerland

From the AMPERE list:

We would like to announce a three-day course for PhD students and Post-Docs on

\”Dissolution Dynamic Nuclear Polarization\”

The course will start at 1pm on Wednesday November the 13th and will end at 5pm on Friday 15th, and will be held at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, at the Laboratory of Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance (LRMB).

* Objectives
Dissolution Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (D-DNP) provides a way to enhance NMR signals in liquids by more than 4 orders of magnitude. We present the current state-of-the-art and most recent advances of this technique, and we propose experimental demonstrations with hands-on participation.

* Content
Lectures and seminars: 11 Hours
Hands-on: 7 Hours

Day 1: Lectures, 1 pm – 5 pm: Theoretical aspects of DNP
– Introduction to DNP-enhanced NMR
– Principles of Dissolution-DNP
– Low temperature DNP mechanisms
– Cross Polarization techniques
– Applications to imaging and chemistry

Day 2: Lectures, 9 am – 12 am: Experimental aspects of DNP
– Hardware for DNP
– Hardware for Cross Polarization
– Hardware for Dissolution

Experiments, 1 pm – 5 pm
– Sample Preparation
– Preparation of a dissolution DNP experiment

Day 3: Experiments, 9 am – 12 am: Practical DNP at the Laboratory of Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance (LRMB)
– Low temperature DNP
– Cross Polarization with DNP
– Dissolution DNP

Seminars, 1 pm – 5 pm

– All participants are invited to give a short presentation, possibly on DNP and/or related to their own research subjects.

*Required prior knowledge
Basic understanding of NMR
