Dear DPES Faculty

It is with great pleasure that I announced to you that the NMR spectrometer in TRACES is operational.  Due to the compressor issue, we were unable to offer this service sooner and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their understanding.  In order to use this instrument, you will need to be trained and the training will commence next week and it will be held on Monday and Tuesday.  The training on Monday will be geared towards the graduate students & postdoc and the training on Tuesday will be for the lecturers (including any interested Professors).  Attached to this email is a SOP, guidelines and NMR user agreement. Please forward this to your graduate students or appropriate personnel in your laboratory.

After our scheduled helium fill on Wednesday (May-16-2012), the instrument will be ready to use staring Thursday May 17th, 2012.
