CMCA Seminar Series: Exploring magnetism in biology using defects indiamond Other events...
Magnetic resonance spectroscopy techniques have changed the face of biomedical research and our view of the human body to the point where electron spin resonance (ESR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) now permeate most areas of clinical science and research. State-of-the-art MRI technology has recently demonstrated sub-millimetre imaging resolution, but if the sub-cellular worlds of biology and chemistry are to be fully explored, a transformative shift in technology is needed. In the presentation I will describe how atomic-sized defects in diamond can be used to image magnetic signals emanating from biological systems. In particular, I will show how the spin relaxation times and optically detected magnetic resonance from these defects can be used to provide vector magnetic images and elemental maps of biological systems.
