Spin Dynamics lecture course
Spin Dynamics is a graduate level lecture course aimed at physicists and chemists working professionally in the area of magnetic resonance spectroscopy or using advanced NMR and EPR techniques as a part of their research. Students who wish to make distance examination arrangements ( e.g. for the course to count towards their degree at their home institution) should contact Ilya Kuprov with the request.
