Press Release:
Electro-mechano-optical NMR detection
Kyoto-Tokyo system promises higher sensitivity for MRI


An international research project led by Kazuyuki Takeda of Kyoto University and Koji Usami of the University of Tokyo has developed a new method of light detection for nuclear magnetic resonance -- NMR -- by up-converting NMR radio-frequency signals into optical signals.

This new detection method -- appearing in the journal Optica -- has the potential to provide more sensitive analysis compared with conventional NMR. Its possible utilization in higher-accuracy chemical analysis, as well as in magnetic resonance imaging -- MRI -- technology, are also of interest.

The paper "Electro-mechano-optical detection of nuclear magnetic resonance" appeared 2 February 2018 in the journal OpticaThe paper "Electro-mechano-optical detection of nuclear magnetic resonance" appeared 2 February 2018 in the journal Optica.
