Our research in solid-state NMR and quantum chemical modelling of NMR parameters requires access to state-of-the-art solid-state NMR spectrometers, high-performance computing facilities, and wet lab space.  Detailed below are some of the facilities available to us.

Bruker 500 Widebore

This departmental instrument has solids, liquids, and microimaging capabilities.
We are equipped with a variety of solids probes (2.5mm, 4mm, 7mm MAS and 5/10mm solenoid).

Bruker 400 Widebore

This instrument is dedicated to solids and is equipped with numerous probes including magic-angle spinning probes, a single crystal probe, and a DOR probe.


The National Ultrahigh-Field NMR Facility for Solids.

DOR Probe

Double-rotation (DOR) NMR probe for high-resolution solid-state NMR of quadrupolar nuclei.

Bruker 200 Widebore

This instrument is dedicated to solids and is very useful for studying nuclei such as C-13, Si-29, P-31. 
There is also a 7 mm MAS probe designed specially for air-sensitive samples sealed in glass tubes.

Wet lab

We are equipped for the synthesis and manipulation of organic and inorganic compounds, including those that are air- and moisture-sensitive.
Equipment includes a glovebox, vacuum line, high-temperature furnace, rotovaps, ball mill, sonicator, balances, etc.

Computing Facilities

On-site clusters as well as access to the Centre for Advanced Computing.


Student Office Space

uOttawa NMR Facility

A range of solid-state and solution NMR instruments.
