Research Interest:
Our main interest is in developing novel experimental techniques in solid and liquid state NMR with primary interest lying in studying dynamics of liquid molecules and solids. Solid state NMR often shows signatures of non-linearity (departure from linear response theory), which, if taken into consideration, can provide wealth of information about the system under study. At the moment we are investigating the non-linear effects both from theoretical and experimental stand points. Such non-linear behaviour is also relevant to dynamic nuclear polarization, which remains our second area of interest. Our third area of interest is quantum information processing.
