Second ERC Synergy grant for the group

Great success for the Institute of Theoretical Physics. In a team with Fedor Jelezko at Ulm and Jan Ardenkjaer-Larsen at the Technical University of Denmark, Martin Plenio wins the ERC Synergy grant HyperQ – Quantum hyperpolarisation for ultrasensitive nuclear magnetic resonance and imaging. This project will allow us to continue our exciting work on diamond based hyperpolarisation that was started with the theory proposal in our group [1] and the first experiments in Fedor Jelezko’s group [2]. We arejoined by Jan Ardenkjaer-Larsen who has pioneered dissolution DNP and as a team we hope to develop this technology to bring it to applications.
