We cordially invite you to participate in
VI International School for Young Scientists: Magnetic Resonance and Magnetic Phenomena in Chemical and Biological Physics
which will be held in Roshchino, St. Petersburg (Leningrad) region, Russia on September 5-10, 2020
The scope of the school is relatively broad, and its key purpose is to present interconnected topics in NMR and EPR spectroscopy in a form that underlines their fundamental similarity. Currently in several areas of research the two spectroscopies interconnect, thus building up new promising approaches, of which, probably, hyperpolarization and paramagnetic NMR are the most known and broadly used examples. We intend approaching the basic mechanisms responsible for the polarization transfer from electrons to nuclei both from NMR and EPR side. Similarities and differences in electron and nuclear relaxation and dipolar interactions will be in the focus of this school, as well.
The school includes lectures and tutorials on pulsed EPR, pulsed NMR, spin hyperpolarization and spin chemistry, including chemically induced spin polarization. The feature of the School is to approach these apparently different topics with a common theoretical framework, with the intention to obtain deeper understanding of spin dynamics of coupled electron-nuclear systems. Another aim of the School is to provide the participants with systematic knowledge of the mechanisms of the action of pulse sequences commonly used in modern EPR and NMR. We will also discuss in depth interplay of electron and nuclear spins in modern EPR and NMR experimental methods. Furthermore, effects of electron and nuclear spins on chemical reactivity, playing the major role in spin chemistry, will be considered.
The program will include lectures and practical tutorials. The composition of the program will allow the participants to learn how to describe the spin dynamics in pulse EPR and NMR experiments and, ultimately, to design novel magnetic resonance experiments. The meeting will be limited to 50 participants (without lecturers). The working language is English.
The School is a biennual event, organized by the International Tomography Center, Institute of Chemical Kinetics & Combustion and Novosibirsk State University. You can learn about the previous meeting here.
This School is organized under the auspices of the Groupement AMPERE, subdivision "Hyperpolarization in Magnetic Resonance".
