Magnetic resonance (MR) is the most chemically specific and at the same time versatile measurement method for detailed information about the structure and function of molecular matter and therefore the fundamental technique for chemical, biological or material science characterizations. However, the low sensitivity of the technique and the relatively high degree of specialization required for its application stand in the way of its widespread use. The Collaborative Research Center "Compact High Performance Magnetic Resonance Systems - HyPERiON" aims to challenge conventional concepts along the entire MR signal processing chain in order to improve the sensitivity, resilience and applicability of the method in equal measure. Ultimately, the goal is to explore new and exciting applications in the fields of chemistry, biology, and even chemical engineering.
