Magnetic Resonance Laboratory

The Magnetic Resonance Laboratory is part of the Basic Physics Activity Unit of the Centro Atómico Bariloche of the Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica, located in San Carlos de Bariloche, Rio Negro, Argentina. The research carried out here complements the academic training of the Instituto Balseiro of the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, as well as welcomes collaborations with other institutions in the country and abroad. Our main activities include basic and applied research in new developments in magnetic properties in materials with applications in medicine, spintronics, materials science and sensors associated with conventional activities and the nuclear sector.


G. Alejandro and D. Velázquez from our lab will present two contributed talks at the INTERMAG 2021 in April 26th – 30th. The title of the talks are:
– EPR characterization of the mixed radiation field of a boron neutron capture therapy irradiation facility: a dual natural lithium formate/L-alanine dosimeter
– Unraveling relaxation mechanisms in ultra-low damping Fe80Co20 thin films

2021 Seminar series
The first seminar of 2021 will be given by Gerardo Goya from UNIZAR. The talk entitled “Nanopartículas para el control de las especies reactivas de oxígeno y estrés celular” is scheduled for March 2nd.
