Low temperature MAS-DNP NMR probeA low temperature magic-angle spinning-dynamic nuclear polarization nuclear magnetic resonance probe is depicted with a cross section diagram (a) and photo of a probe head (b). The sample (shown in green) is cooled with helium while spinning at ~7 kHz.Low temperature MAS-DNP NMR probeEnlarge
