My research is focused on hyperpolarization methods, in particular ParaHydrogen Induced Polarization, and diagnostic applications of MR hyperpolarized substrates. Relaxation is a fundamental issue, in this research field, since nuclear spin hyperpolarization is a transient condition and relaxation phenomena tend to restore the thermal equilibrium population of nuclear spin states. My interest is centred on singlet state relaxation at low magnetic field.
