Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility


All solution instruments are available around the clock, with the exception that on Thursdays maintenance and nitrogen fills are done. The time varies, so check with us.

Schedules for each instrument for the next week are posted outside 071 Clark on Friday afternoons. Users who are authorized may self-schedule at that time.

Currently, kepler-186f has "short-use time" of MWF 10 am - 5 pm, and TR 10 am - 1 pm. Use during these times is restricted to 1 hour. Reservations are not required, but are allowed.

The solution 300 has 3 blocks of time that may not be reserved:

10:00-11:30 am, 3:30-5:00 pm, and 7:00-8:00 pm. These times are reserved for "walk-on" or unscheduled usage. Please limit yourself to 15 minutes during these open times.

Masnmr (widebore 300) does not have walk-on times. Check the schedule posted next to B071 to see if the system is available for solids or solutions.

Liquid helium fills often render the instruments unstable for a few hours. The next fill is scheduled for early August. Signs are posted on helium fill days.

It is reasonable to anticipate that the instruments would be unusable for several hours after a power outage.
