nuclear magnetic resonance

[′nü·klē·ər mag′ned·ik ′rez·ən·əns]
(physics)
A phenomenon exhibited by a large number of atomic nuclei, in which nuclei in a static magnetic field absorb energy from a radio-frequency field at certain characteristic frequencies. Abbreviated NMR. Also known as magnetic nuclear resonance.

Typical commercial applications include communications, command-control-and-guidance, surveillance, NMR imaging and ATE systems.
Wirth acted as outside general counsel for a number of public and private biotechnology companies, including companies working in the areas of neuroscience, immunology, non-absorbable pharmaceuticals, gene therapy, structure-based drug design, NMR imaging agents, and bioseparations.
All three companies compete in the main NMR markets: ultra high-field instruments (800-900 MHz), high field instruments (500-700 MHz), low field instruments (300-400 mhz), solid state NMR, and NMR imaging.
These significant discoveries led to the development of NMR spectroscopy and NMR imaging techniques.
