Category: NMR Spectroscopy

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy uses magnetic fields to probe atoms. This gives information about the atomic environment, which can be used to determine the crystal structure of a sample. But it also tells you about the movements of atoms, making it possible to determine how quickly atoms move through a crystal or liquid. Furthermore it is possible to do measurements at very different time-scales, making it possible to probe all the important processes in a battery, which makes NMR a powerful tool for battery research.
