Yesterday was eventful in the new CBEC NMR facility. The 850 MHz reached the magnet field of 20 Telsa. It will rest at this field for two days before the cryoshimming begins. The Bruker engineers will spend 10 days cryoshimming before the tests on the probes and console begin. The CCIC 800 MHz NMR arrived yesterday and is being assembled in preparation for pumping the vacuum chambers and cooling. This instrument will be configured with micro-imaging and diffusion accessories as well as a narrow-bore solid state NMR probe.
The CBC 600 MHz will arrive any day now….
