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 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:

  • 4 mm 1H-X, 7mm 1H-X MAS probes Broad band and extended VT)
  • 4 mm 1H-X-Y Triple resonance MAS probe
  • 2.5 mm 1H-X-Y Triple resonance MAS probe (600MHz) 
  • 2.5 mm 19F-1H-X MAS probe (400 MHz)
  • 2.5 mm 1H-X MAS probe (600 MHz)
  • 7 mm HT MAS DOTY probe (650 oC)
  • Wideline solid state probes (400 and 600 MHz)
  • 1.3mm ultrafast MAS probe (600MHz)
  • 5 mm, 10mm broadband solution probes with single gradients
  • 5 mm H/X inverse, single gradient solution probe5 mm TXI – triple gradient solution probe
  • 5 mm 203, 205Tl solution probe
  • 60 µL flow probe
  • 5 mm 19F/1H solution probe (600 MHz)
  • 5 mm DIFF30 probe with water-cooled 1250 G/cm gradients
