ZULF NMR ITN Blog Launched

We have published the first of our planned series of blog posts on ZULF NMR and related topics. The posts will be authored by people from the ZULF ITN network and invited guests. You can see the first post by our Blog Curator Dr. James Eills here.

'I hope this blog can be a helpful learning tool for the uninitiated reader, and of interest to a broad range of scientists and nonexperts! If you would like to contribute a blog post, please don't hesitate to get in touch' - Dr. James Eills


Virtual poster session of the 1st Conference on ZULF NMR starts tomorrow

Be sure submit your poster during the coming week according to the guidelines described at the conference page to be eligible for a prize funded by our sponsors.


1st Conference on ZULF NMR platform change

Due to GDPR requirements and privacy concerns we have decided to make a switch of platforms from Zoom to Microsoft services. Participation in the conference will be possible from a browser and will not require installing any Microsoft software. For registration instructions please visit the registration page. The virtual Twitter poster session will start the week before the conference on Monday, 24 August. Relevant information can be found here.

The ZULF European Training Network (ETN) comprises groups from eight leading European universities and one scientific research centre, dedicated to developing, exploring and applying methods of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in the regime of zero and ultra-low magnetic fields (ZULFs). The project is aimed at providing absolutely unique training, combining the experience of world-leading experts in diverse fields and disciplines to 11 individuals, and leading to a doctoral degree. Apart from the opportunity to participate in groundbreaking research, the young scientists will acquire soft and transferable skills including scientific writing, communication and presentation, data mining, curation and analysis, entrepreneurship, knowledge of intellectual property law, business administration and finance. All of them absolutely indispensable for any modern scientist.

The beneficiaries of the ETN ZULF consortium have made pioneering contributions to the field, in particular:

The ZULF ETN project brings together international leaders in these areas, with the goal of providing the Early Stage Researchers with a unique basis for exploring novel directions that go beyond the works conducted in individual groups, including:

  • submillihertz spectral resolution ZULF NMR;
  • nanometer spatial-resolution J-spectroscopy with NV diamonds;
  • NMR spectra of molecules at natural abundance using hyperpolarization;
  • application of ZULF NMR in searches for fundamental properties and symmetries of nature (parity non-conservation);
  • chemical fingerprinting of molecules in liquids.
