Description: The portable NMR detector would be a smaller device than traditional laboratory NMR spectrometers and would be used in conjunction with a computer. The device would be appropriate for classroom/educational purposes as well as applications in the field when a laboratory spectrometer is not available. Practical applications of this will be very useful for small scale histological studies. Furthermore, the small size and high performance will allow the wide scale proliferation of NMR and MRI in small and educational laboratories. While not as powerful as standard NMR machines with fields of up to 9 T, this device will have no need for power or cryogens, and weigh significantly less. Furthermore, due to the nature of the construction, we should be able to easily adjust the field strength down to 1/100th of the maximum field without degradation of the field homogeneity. The largest dimension will probably be about 18 inches. We will be building two magnet designs for use in NMR and MRI studies. The first generate a .6T field over a 5mm ~cubic volume with a ring of square NdFeB magnets 18mm per side. The second design will generate a 1.1T field over a 10mm ~cubic volume with 2 rings of rod NdFeB magnets magnetized along the diameter. We will use Halbach's magnetic reciprocity to generate these highly homogenous fields by placing magnetic material in orientations to match the field generated by the desired magnetic dipole The project will consist of designing, simulating, and constructing the magnet array, field correction plates, RF coil, and sample chamber, as well as interfacing the detector with existing NMR computer software and hardware. The magnetic assembly will consist of NdFeB rare earth magnets in a hexagonal Halbach arraignment oriented at the magic angle (twice the angle about the principle magnetization vector). Simulation will be done via FEA on a 2-D plane for simplicity. Our goal is to get 10ppm homogeneity in a 1cm ellipsoid within the center of the device with field strength of ~1 Tesla. We also intend to fill the sample chamber with a fluorinated fluid that will homogenize the field further and yield sharper spectra. Further (or secondary) goals for this project are to adapt the magnet for use in MRI meaning the addition of X,Y, and Z gradient coils either exterior or interior of the sample chamber as well as RF and magnetic shielding for better SNR and easier placement.
