The National Ultrahigh-Field NMR Facility for Solids is a national scientific user facility funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). This facility is seen as the most cost-effective way to provide the Canadian NMR community access to a world-leading NMR facility for advancing the science of materials and the innovative development of technologically advanced products.
Funding for the establishment of the facility has been arranged through CFI, provincial agencies (Ontario Innovation Trust, Recherche Québec), Bruker Canada and NRC, with NRC providing a site for the facility in the newly renovated W.G. Schneider building, including office and laboratory space, test equipment and some ongoing support. The building is leased to the University of Ottawa, who manages the NMR facility. The Facility has been fully operational since September 2005.
The equipment consists of a Bruker Avance
II 900 MHz NMR spectrometer with magnet, console, probes and ancillary equipment
to acquire ultrahigh field static and fast spinning NMR spectra of solid materials.
The uniqueness of the Facility is that it is dedicated to solid-state NMR
research, where the highest magnetic fields are beneficial for quadrupolar
and low-gamma nuclei such as oxygen-17, magnesium-25, and chlorine-35 among
others. This type of instrument is not available elsewhere in Canada.
- to provide Canadian researchers and their academic and industrial
collaborators access to a world-leading 900 MHz NMR facility for solids and
- to ensure a stimulating research environment and expert assistance and
- to contribute to the design and development of advanced equipment,
including NMR probes, for solid-state NMR research at ultrahigh magnetic
- to enhance opportunities for collaborative and multidisciplinary research
on national and international levels
for time on the 900
All Canadian academic, government and industrial researchers interested in
ultrahigh field solid-state NMR are eligible to apply for time on the 900 MHz NMR spectrometer. Non-Canadian researchers are also welcome, although the priority will be given to Canadian-funded projects. Please refer to user policies for information on how to apply for instrument time.
