This course is an introduction to solid state NMR. A few basic theoretical concepts will be explained, but most of the course will be practical. After being trained in rotor filling and packing, the participants will proceed to setup the probe using Topsolids. Thanks to the assistance of Topsolids, the users will set the magic angle, shim the probe, and perform some pulse calibrations. Carbon and nitrogen CPMAS spectra are also part of the practical program.
Depending on customer requests and hardware availability, additional more advanced nD-experiments for bio-solids or material science will be illustrated.
To profit at the maximum of the course we recommend the participation to customers with at least a basic understanding of NMR. A good knowledge of Topspin is helpful but not necessary.
