Solid-State NMR at 850 MHz and 1 GHz: A World-leading UK Facility to deliver Advances in Materials Science, Chemistry, Biology, Earth Science and Physics
The original 850 MHz widebore solid-state NMR system (4 channel HFXY with 11 MAS (0.7 to 7 mm) probes and a DOR and a static probe), as supplied by Bruker, is sited in the Magnetic Resonance Centre at Millburn House, University of Warwick. Additional funding was provided by the University of Warwick including via funding through Birmingham Science City Advanced Materials Projects 1 and 2 supported by Advantage West Midlands (AWM) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). A 1 GHz standard-bore (4 channel HFXY with 8 MAS (0.7 to 7 mm)) is available since 2021.
Following a bid by a consortium of 7 UK universities, contract funding (PR140003) with a service level agreement (SLA) has been awarded as an EPSRC (with 10% funding by BBSRC) National Research Facility for a further 3+2 years of operation from January 2015.
