Description

THE MAGIC AND MYSTERY OF MAGNETIC RESONANCE

The phenomenon of magnetic resonance was first revealed in the classic Stern-Gerlach experiment in 1922. Over the nearly 100 years and 10 Nobel Prizes that followed, magnetic resonance has developed into one of the most powerful analytical tools available to chemists, geochemists, physicists, molecular biologists, and materials scientists. The phenomenon of magnetic resonance also developed into one of the most useful medical diagnostic methods via Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). In this talk George Cody will introduce and explain how Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) works without going deep into the physics. Cody will also explain how MRI works, why it is counterintuitive, and why it takes so long and is so noisy! Finally, he will provide examples of how he uses NMR to address important problems in geochemistry.

Dr. George Cody: Staff Scientist, Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution for Science
