WELCOME to the High-Field DNP/EPR laboratory

The high-field DNP/EPR laboratory is a new research laboratory in the School of Chemistry at Tel-Aviv University, established in 2018, led by the principal investigator Dr. Ilia Kaminker.

Our goal is to extend Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to material characterization in challenging systems, which are traditionally not amenable for it.


Our main tool is Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) which allows for a signal enhancement of orders of magnitude in NMR. For this purpose, we develop new methodologies, theoretically and experimentally, as well as new instrumentation.


The systems of interest include single atom heterogeneous catalysts, metal organic frameworks and other materials containing magnetic nuclear isotopes that are not traditionally studied by NMR.
