This summer I set out to get a previously existing parahydrogen hyperpolarization setup to work on a single-sided magnet (see previous posts for a more in-depth explanation of what those words mean).

Week 3

This week had a fun mix of things going on in and out of work. At work, I dove into the interviews, talking with at least two employees each day. The variety of people’s lifestyles and opinions really fascinates me, so I feel lucky to have the chance to converse with so many people! On […]
