Static DNP Probes

Making it possible for NMR groups to bring static H/X/Y/e- DNP into their labs


For both solids and liquids at high fields


The estimated price including the solid-state μw source, the Doty DNP probe, waveguides, and transitions, for 7T to 11.7T, is anticipated to be in the range of $180K to $220K.


Adequate solid-state μw sources are available up to 11.7 T.

The static DNP cavity and probe being initially developed for 7 T is expected to yield two orders of magnitude gain in S/N for a wide range of solids NMR experiments, and it is expected to do so with an order of magnitude lower microwave (μw) power than competing MAS-DNP designs. This allows for using solid state μw sources. (Of course the probe could also be used with a gyrotron.)

Overall, the proposed technology development is expected to provide biomedical researchers with tremendous new opportunities for the structure-function studies of membrane proteins and cellular membrane systems at a manageable budget.

Related cavity designs compatible with MAS-DNP are also being developed.
