We are offering a Master thesis on hyperpolarized magnetic resonance combined with the scientific assistant job.
Hyperpolarization is a phenomenon of a dramatic increase of the MRI signal of selected nuclei by several orders of magnitude. Our new project is dedicated to the hyperpolarization of gases by spin-exchange optical pumping (SEOP). In our experiments, we will exploit 129Xenon gas polarized under laser beam excitation. Then, polarized 129Xe can be employed for human lung imaging, i.e. for ventilation, diffusion, and dissolved-phase measurements.
Your main goal, as a Hiwi, will be a support in installation and optimization of the polarizer. If time permits, you will assist in the assembling of the radiofrequency coil for the detection of Xenon signal and MR-imaging of the gas in our 7T machine. The candidate should hold a Bachelor Degree in engineering/physics or related disciplines.
