Polymerspektroskopie (Prof. Dr. Hans Wolfgang Spiess)
MPI für Polymerforschung, Mainz
SummaryFor the first time images of gases can be acquired my magnetic resonance techniques due to recent developments in optical polarization methods. This can be used to investigate the lung with unrivalled spatial resolution. The morphology and function of the lung down to microscopic levels can be characterized by the combination of these methods with further physical information.
