In collaboration with researchers at the
SBT department, we have developed innovative instrumentation for DNP and high-resolution solid-state NMR at very low temperatures. A major milestone has just been reached: a cryostat and a probe can be used continuously to cool the helium gas flows, enabling the sample holder to be sustained and driven at more than 10,000 revolutions per second and at ultra-low temperatures. Thermal and fluidic performance puts this pre-industrial-level instrument at the forefront of worldwide prototyping.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
