research interests

My general research goal is to develop and use new sequences for structural investigations of the samples, when the experimental conditions are extreme and the known methods are fallen to work. The extreme conditions can be low intensities of the pulses, ultra fast spinning speed or large anisotropic interactions. The second goal is to know and to learn different NMR magnets, which are used in laboratory and be able to solve the spectroscopic and technical problems in the future. In New York University during postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Prof. Alexej Jerschow I had developed and used static NMR methods for investigation of ions of sodium with residual quadrupolar coupling or bi-exponential relaxation when intensities of the used pulses were low. During my Ph.D. in Tel Aviv University under supervision of Prof. Amir Goldbourt I had developed the MAS NMR methods for measuring of the distance between half spin and the spin with large anisotropic interactions.
