Condensed Matter NMR
The lab boasts a Condensed Matter NMR Group dedicated to NMR research at the highest possible fields over a wide temperature range. The current facilities allow experiments to be routinely carried out at fields to 45 T at temperatures from 1.5 K to 300 K, with plans to go lower. In addition, 15 T and 9 T magnets with associated spectrometers are dedicated to this program for the labís in-house research, with the goal of developing instruments and techniques that enhance the labís user programs. A very wide range of nuclei have been utilized from the low Y to protons over a frequency range from 10 to 1000 MHz. The core objective is to generate new science, and understanding of a range of condensed matter systems of major fundamental and technological importance using the site-specific NMR technique to study field dependent phenomena at the highest possible fields. Current research areas include highly correlated electron systems, high temperature superconductivity, semiconductors, magnetic system, magnetic clusters, low dimensional electron systems, and Arsenide glasses. Of particular interest are field-driven phenomena and phase transitions.
