Earth’s Field NMR
Buffalo State College, July 9–11, 2018
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is a fundamental nuclear phenomenon and is a powerful research tool. Research grade NMR instruments utilize an extremely uniform, high magnetic field for polarization of nuclear spins and the detection of the magnetization of spins in the samples. In contrast, Earth’s-Field NMR (EF-NMR) utilizes the globally available Earth's magnetic field for the detection of the magnetization. Although an EFNMR setup has low sensitivity compared to a regular high-field NMR system, this simple low-magnetic field system offers a uniquely simple tool for teaching NMR at low costs.

Ram C. Rai is Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at Buffalo State College. Professor Rai has been doing experimental research in condensed matter physics since he was a graduate student at the University of Kentucky. His research interests include the study of electronic and magnetic materials via transport, optical, electro-optical, and magneto-optical techniques. He is particularly interested in the growth and study of thin films of multiferroic complex oxides with functional properties. He has been teaching the advanced physics lab since Fall 2007 and has mentored several undergraduate students on research projects.
