BASIC - CP/MAS Course (SB Systems)

Introductory Course


  • Basic theory of the interactions in solid state samples and the MAS technique.
  • Introduction of the CP/MAS technique and heteronuclear decoupling techniques.
  • Introduction to Solid State NMR of Spin ½ nuclei (e.g. 13C/15N/29Si/31P).
  • Basic introduction to modern spectrometer concepts.
  • Sample preparation and MAS–spinner handling.
  • Setup and interpretation of 1D – CP/MAS experiments (how to check the probe / shimming /RF calibration / finding HH matching condition).
  • Setup of variable temperature experiments.
  • Setup and evaluation of relaxation measurements on X nuclei and protons.


This course is intended for users of standard-bore solid state NMR instruments with CP/MAS probes.
