Extending the Scope of Magnetic Resonance


Magnetic resonance techniques have become invaluable tools across the physical sciences. In this talk I will discuss the physics behind magnetic resonance, its various applications, and my own work extending the scope of its use. I will discuss my previous work modifying a medical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine to image inside bone instead of soft tissue, as well as my work using extremely sensitive atomic magnetometers as detectors with the future goal of building an inexpensive, portable nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) system.
