This is an rf/microwave instrumentation-based project. The PhD candidate will build an 18.8 T / 527 GHz electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrometer to study the structure and chemistry of molecules that can boost the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signal of biomolecules or functional materials. Moreover, we will build a setup that allows both EPR and DNP NMR to be performed in the same probe, which is not commercially available. If successfully built, this will be the world s first 527 GHz EPR spectrometer equipped with a high-power microwave source (gyrotron). We have successfully built a similar setup at a lower field (6.7 T / 188 GHz) that allows dual DNP NMR and EPR detection (unpublished results). The candidate shall extend the setup to a higher frequency of 527 GHz. This highly interdisciplinary project involves electrical engineering, physics, and chemistry. We welcome ambitious and open-minded electrical engineer or physicist interested in cross-disciplinary science to join us.
