Andhika Kiswandhi, a newly-minted PhD in Physics from the National High Magnetic Field Lab at Florida State University, joins the Lumata research group beginning January 2015. Andhika is an expert in cryogenics and high magnetic field research of a wide-array of materials and he will apply these expertise in the construction of a high-field dissolution DNP hyperpolarizer at UT Dallas. Welcome aboard Andhika!
Lab PI Lloyd Lumata will be teaching a new graduate biophysics course in Spring 2015. PHYS 5V48.002.15S (Modern Techniques in Biophysics) encompasses topics that include the modern tools used in biophysics/biomedical physics with special emphasis on magnetic resonance/spectroscopy: nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Raman spectroscopy, Hyperpolarization/dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) etc. For more information, please check the course description at UT Dallas website: http://coursebook.utdallas.edu/phys5v48.002.15s
