The Materials Magnetic Resonance Section addresses basic and applied research problems in materials chemistry. Critical Navy problems in materials performance and reliability are stressed, utilizing innovative techniques and approaches, principally in magnetic resonance. Advanced high-resolution solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy techniques can be used to observe nuclei across much of the Periodic Table and provide detailed structural and dynamical information. NMR techniques can be applied to non-destructive evaluation of materials. NQR is being developed as a sensor technology.
