Interdisciplinary Seminar sponsored by the Departments of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Chemical

Summary: Interdisciplinary Seminar sponsored by the
Departments of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Chemical
Engineering, Materials Research Laboratory, and
Institute of Terahertz Science & Technology
Prof. Alexander Pines
Glenn T. Seaborg Professor of Chemistry,
University of California, Berkeley
"Toward Miniaturization of NMR and MRI"
When: Seminar at 4pm on February 13 (Monday), 2012
Where: UCSB Bren School Auditorium, Room 1414
Abstract: Contemporary NMR and MRI instruments are big, immobile and expensive. I shall describe recent
advances in our laboratory aimed at translating some of the capabilities of NMR and MRI on to a mobile
microfluidic chip platform. Components of the converging methodologies include optical pumping and
detection, functionalized biosensors, superconducting quantum interference detection, laser atomic
magnetometry and remote microfluidic sensing at low magnetic field. Such developments will contribute to the
possibility of targeted molecular and lab-on-a-chip NMR and MRI in physics, chemistry and biomedicine.
