About Steve Group Members Alumni Publications

  • Steve's paper "Biexponential I = 3/2 Spin-Lattice Relaxation in the Solid State: Multiple-Quantum 7Li NMR as a Probe of Fast Ion Dynamics" with collaborators George Rudman and Karen Johnston of Durham University has been accepted for publication in The Journal of Physical Chemistry C [Get Preprint].

  • Steve visited the University of Nottingham on 29 February 2024 and presented a talk entitled "Multiple-Quantum 23Na and 7Li NMR: Something Old, Something New". His hosts in the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre were Dr Galina Pavloskaya and Professor Thomas Meersmann.

  • Steve visited the University of Durham on two occasions (2-5 May and 1-4 August 2023) to carry out some 7Li NMR experiments with Dr Karen Johnston and her research group. The visit was also an opportunity for Steve to catch up with old friend and colleague Professor Paul Hodgkinson.

  • Steve attended the 19th European Magnetic Resonance Congress (EUROMAR 2023) in Glasgow, UK (9-13 July 2023) where he chaired a session of invited and contributed talks on solid-state NMR.

  • The Leverhulme Trust has extended Steve's Leverhulme Emeritus Fellowship until 31 March 2024.

  • Steve attended the 64th Experimental NMR Conference in Pacific Grove, California (16-20 April 2023) where he presented a poster entitled "Towards Shorter Composite Refocusing and Inversion Pulses for NMR". The conference was also an opportunity to catch up with many old friends and colleagues, including Professor Len Mueller and Dr James Keeler [See Photo].

  • Steve attended the 12th Annual Symposium of the UK High-Field Solid-State NMR Facility on 28 March 2023, which was held this year at the University of Warwick.

  • Steve has been awarded a two-year Leverhulme Emeritus Fellowship by the Leverhulme Trust, worth £23,000. The project is entitled Probing Fast Ion Dynamics in the Solid State using Novel 7Li NMR Methods and commenced on 1 August 2021.

  • Past and present members of the group were deeply saddened to learn of the untimely passing of Dr Sasa Antonijevic in February 2022. Sasa studied for his PhD in the Wimperis group from 2000 to 2004, while we were based at Exeter University. He was an energetic, enthusiastic, intelligent, original and highly sociable student who seemed destined for a very bright future. Unfortunately, something went badly wrong later on in Sasa's career, in a manner which many of us still struggle to understand. We hope that people will come to remember only Sasa's best days, of which there were many.
