The NanoSpin project aims to use nitrogen vacancy centers (NV centers) in carbon crystal lattices for dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) in NMR experiments. The NV centers will be manipulated to hyperpolarize a sample and increase the strength of the NMR signal. This will be performed by an international consortium of physicists, chemists and electrical engineers. In Wageningen we will use our knowledge of Micro NMR to implement this new technology in convential NMR equipment.
We provide a disciplinary and multidisciplinary research programme aimed at advanced understanding of environmental problems and advanced training of PhD candidates in this field.
