Field-cycling NMR technique is a technique which changes the magnetic fields of the sample during the experiment. This method can be conducted on the applications that require NMR parameters measurements at different magnetic fields, for instance, MRI contrast agent studies or protein dynamics or material science.
In order to measure NMR parameters at a wide magentic field range meanwhile with high-resolution spectra, we designed a high-speed sample shuttling device working on a superconducting magnet (high-field NMR spectrometer). This design uses the advantage of high field spectrometers, which has high-magnetic field and large magnetic field range in the stray field. The field switch is controlled by the speed of sample shuttling. This combination is called "High-Field Field-Cycling NMR". However, this implementation in high-field NMR also brought challenges of hardware design, like the limitation of material selection due to the high-magnetic field environment or the narrow space in the magnet bore, etc.
Fortunately, we successfully overcome all the challenges to build a robust shuttle device. Nowadays this device is called "High-Field Field-Cycler" (HFFC) and is avalible commercially.
