Spectrometers

The spectrometers listed below are all managed by the NMR expertise center. In general there are two categories to be discerned:

 

Open access infrastructure

These spectrometers operate 24/7 in a semi-automated environment and are available for researchers to measure in an independent manner following a short training organized by Tim Courtin (CTO).

  • 300MHz (Phobos)
  • 400MHZ (Deimos)

Research infrastructure

This infrastructure is accessible to dedicated researchers only, following a clear and adequate motivation illustrating the research needs. The researcher in questions needs to follow an in-depth training before access is allowed.
