Magnetic Resonance Physics


Admission Requirements

For physics students:
QM 1 and 2 or good fundamental knowledge in quantum mechanics
Bachelor course ‘Basics of Magnetic Resoance ‘or equivalent
Students from other programs:
Individual evalutation - please contact the lecturer


The course aims to describe the physics behind magnetic resonance methods and how magnetic resonance methods are currently applied to solve problems in physics, chemistry and biology.

Course objectives

  • to understand the concept of the spin Hamiltonian and the vector and quantummechanical description of magnetic resonance

  • treat spin-spin interactions and how they appear in the spectra

  • two- and four-level systems

  • to gain insight into instrumental aspects of electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) experiments: Application of lock-in detection, continuous wave vs. pulsed EPR

  • multi-frequency EPR experiments
    EPR and NMR

  • Current applications
