Sludges and Spins – Magnetic Resonance for Constructed Wetlands
An inaugural lecture by Dr Robert Morris
Join us for this lecture by Dr Robert Morris to explore the fascinating developments in the world of magnetic resonance.
- From: Monday 9 May 2016, 6 pm
- To: Monday 9 May 2016, 9 pm
- Location: CELS, Nottingham Trent University, Clifton Campus, Clifton Lane, Nottingham, NG11 8NS
Many people are familiar with magnetic resonance in the form of hospital MRI scanners which are expensive and large. The same principles are, however, very useful for non-invasively exploring the physical and chemical properties of many samples.
In recent years, the availability of low cost permanent rare earth magnets and advances in electronics has allowed the development of inexpensive magnetic resonance sensors which can be embedded inside samples of interest rather than placing the sample inside the probe.
This lecture will focus on the principles of this exciting technique and its recent application to studying the biological, chemical and physical processes occurring in a modular automated constructed wetland system.
