Welcome to our website!

Hyperpolarization is an emerging method to increase the power of magnetic resonance (MR) dramatically. It commences at the very fundamentals of MR by increasing the inherent low polariaztion up to unity. Hyperpolarization has demonstrated to enhance the MR signal 100.000 fold, paving the avenues for entirely new applications of MR.

Bridging the gap between spin physics and medcial diagnostics, hyperpolarization is a truely interdisciplinary research area with all the benefits and pitfalls which come along. The hyperpolarization group in Freiburg is focused on the development of new hyperpolarization methods and bringing these advances to biomedical application.

Given the Medical Center's infrastructure, the integration of Medical Physics in the Hospital, and the University of Science at hand, Freiburg offers optimal condistions for this undertaking.
