900 MHz Magnetic Resonance Facility


Building NW15 has been renovated to house a new 900 MHz magnetic resonance spectrometer for research in chemistry and biology. Magnetic resonance is a powerful tool for determining the structure of molecules, and has proven especially useful for elucidating the role of proteins in biological processes and diseases.

The heart of the 900 MHz magnetic resonance instrument is a superconducting magnet with a field strength of 21 Tesla, the highest field currently available for magnetic resonance spectroscopy, roughly 400,000 times stronger than the earth's magnetic field.
