STELAR specializes in unique nuclear magnetic resonance instruments based on the innovative method of “Fast Field Cycling Relaxometry” (FFC) for the analysis of most substances and materials in academic and industrial research. STELAR’s FFC relaxometers probe the complex physical molecular dynamics properties (molecular motions) rather than the chemical structure of the substance or material under investigation and thus bring a new dimension of analysis to research laboratories.
STELAR’s instruments provide novel solutions for a wide range of research applications, in particular: Characterization and development of new MRI CONTRAST AGENTS and MAGNETIC NANOPARTICLE THERAPIES; rheological properties of POLYMERS; ROCKS CORE analysis; CEMENT microstructure properties; diffusive properties of BATTERY ELECTROLYTES; dynamics and aggregation of THERAPEUTIC PROTEINS; pre-clinical in vivo diagnoses of TUMOURS; fingerprinting of FOOD for authentication and shelf-life.


Product news

  • FFC Expert from Cambridge University to give presentations

    STELAR is proud to host an expert from Cambridge University on stand H14 to give some short presentations on Fast Field Cycling NMR relaxometry as an analytical technique. Jordan Ward-Williams from the Magnetic Resonance Research Centre at Cambridge will be presenting at regular intervals during both days of the fair. We will post times of presentations on stand H14.

  • Attention battery material researchers!

    Are you researching new battery materials for the electronics or car industry? Fast Field Cycling relaxometry can help characterize your materials. You can look at the dynamic behaviour of both anions and cations (diffusion, clustering, etc.) with FFC measurements. The STELAR SPINMASTER 1T relaxometer is ideal for this application as it allows you to study the dynamics of key nuclei such as proton, lithium, fluorine and sodium, etc.


  • FFC relaxometry application: Oil industry

    Do you work in the oil industry or do research on porous materials such as rocks and cement? You could be missing out on some critical information that can be provided by Fast Field Cycling relexometry. For example, assessment of microscopic NMR wettability, obtained by FFC relaxometry measurements, can help to give a more accurate estimation of how much oil you can extract from your well. The technique provides much more information on surface dynamics in porous materials than many other NMR methods.


  • FFC relaxometry application: MRI contrast agents

    If your research involves MRI contrast agents or therapeutic magnetic nanoparticles (Gadolinium, Iron, Manganese complexes), Fast Field Cycling relaxometry is an extremely useful tool, for relaxometric characterization and optimization of these agents. Take a look at our application note which explains how the FFC method can be applied.


  • IDentIFY - EU H2020 project for developing new imaging technique (FFC-MRI)

    The EU has highlighted the IDentIFY H2020 project, as a success story. The development of a new technique for medical imaging by the University of Aberdeen and partners including STELAR, known as FFC-MRI, should lead to quicker diagnoses of a variety of medical conditions.
    For more information on the project please go to the project website.


  • New Royal Society of Chemistry book on Field Cycling NMR Relaxometry

    The new book on Field Cycling NMR Relaxometry by Rainer Kimmich, published by the Royal Society of Chemistry is a highly recommended read by STELAR for anyone wishing to enter into the realm of NMR relaxometry. The field cycling technique is becoming more widely adopted by researchers in a variety of different fields, in academia and industry, ranging from materials science (porous materials, such as rocks and cements, battery materials and polymers) to biomedical applications (MRI contrast agents, therapeutic proteins, formulations, tumour typing).
