Lab Description

The Sandia National Laboratories NMR Facility includes three high-field NMR spectrometers for both solid state and solution NMR characterization of materials: Bruker AVANCE III 600, Bruker AVANCE III HD 400 (WB), Bruker AVANCE III 500. All three instruments have full broadband capability; the AVANCE 600 and AVANCE 400 also have solid-state and PFG capabilities.

The Facility houses a variety of solution- and solid-state probes, including:

Avance III 600 MHz

  • 1.3 mm ultrafast H/X, 2.5 mm H/X, 4 mm H/X , MAS probes
  • 2.5 mm H/X/Y MAS probe
  • 4 mm H/P/C/D HR-MAS probe with gradient
  • Wideline solid state probes
  • 5 mm, 10mm broadband (BBO) solution probes with gradient
  • 5 mm H/X inverse(BBI), gradient solution probe
  • 5 mm H/X/Y inverse (TBI), gradient solution probe
  • 5 mm F/H solution probe
  • 60 ┬ÁL H/C/D flow probe
  • 5 mm DIFF30 solution probe with water-cooled 1250 G/cm gradients

Avance III 500 MHz

  • 5 mm H/X BBO, H/X/YTBI and H/X BBI probes
