The Swedish Interdisciplinary Magnetic Resonance Center is a cross-disciplinary research center,
aiming to bring together and facilitate idea and information exchanges between the disciplines
that use Magnetic Resonance.
SIMARC was born 18th November 1998 and it is situated at Linköping University in Sweden. The center covers a broad research area: Materials Science (Electronic, photonic and spintronic materials, etc.); Chemical Physics, Chemistry (catalysts, free radicals, etc.); Radiation Physics, Medical Science (e.g. retrospective, medical radiation dosimetry); Biochemistry, Applied Physics (protein dynamics and protein-protein interaction, etc.).
Our stated aims are:
These facilities belong to and are placed and managed by the group of Functional Electronic Materials.
Bruker ELEXSYS 500 L/X-band EPR and EPR imaging system
Custom-made Bruker ELEXSYS E500 X/Q-band EPR and ODMR spectrometer
Bruker ELEXSYS 580 Pulsed EPR/ENDOR X-band spectrometer
Modified Bruker ER200D X-band ODMR/OD-ENDOR spectrometer
Home-built Q-band ODMR spectrometer
cw and pulsed W-band (95 GHz) EPR and ODMR system
The research activities at SIMARC cover several areas of various disciplines, including Materials Science, Chemical Physics, Chemistry, Applied Physics, Radiation Physics and Medical Science. The materials studied include novel spintronic materials and nanostructures, advanced electronic and photonic materials such as wide bandgap semiconductors and highly mismatched semiconductors, organic materials for dosimetry and biochemical materials.
