NMR Research Unit

The focus of our unit is the research in modern nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). We are developing and applying modern experimental as well as computational magnetic resonance methods to create new tools to characterize physical properties of molecules, materials and nanosystems and to reliably interpret the acquired data with high accuracy using quantum-chemical calculations.

LuK/FM-projekteja tarjolla (B.Sc./M.Sc. projects)
