Elective course MSc Chemistry


Theoretical basis of modern Solid State NMR-spectroscopy, non-stationary processes. Introduction into coherent spin dynamics and solid state NMR for materials, and biomolecules. The basis is the density matrix formalism for non-stationary processes in the solid state, and how to manipulate the dynamics in spin space and real space with a spectrometer, exploring the symmetry of the theoretical description. During the course we will perform computer simulations of NMR experiments for gaining hands-on experience, and there is room for the students bringing in their own favorite pulse sequences for analysis.
