Featuring improved resolution and sensitivity, the SCH offers unprecedented opportunities for studying half-integer quadroplar nuclei and opens up the NMR periodic table to challenging nuclides in minerals, glasses and organic/inorganic materials.

This novel hybrid magnet features two configurations to facilitate exciting high-field research.

With a resistive insert made of Florida-Bitter coils and a superconducting outsert that are electrically connected in series, the “Series Connected Hybrid” (SCH) magnet system is powered by the same 14 MW power supply, rather than independently with two separate power supplies, as is 45-tesla hybrid magnet.

In its Chemical and Biological NMR configuration, the SCH features an active shim/compensation system which achieves a magnetic field homogeneity at field center of about 1 ppm. The inner diameter of this configuration is 40 mm. Several sample probes are available to users of this system. For additional information, please contact Robert Schurko.

To learn more about the SCH for Condensed Matter Science, please visit 36 Tesla, 48 mm bore, 100 ppm Homogeneity Series Connected Hybrid Magnet for Condensed Matter or contact Tim Murphy for further details.
