Professor Warren Warren has been awarded the 2020 Günther Laukien Prize for his contributions to nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Warren received the Laukien prize together with two other researchers from England and Russia for a technique they developed, called X-SABRE, that can create a 100,000-fold jump in signal strength with results that last for over an hour, for 1% of the cost of current methods. Warren and his team are working on scaling up the X-SABRE technology so it can be used for non-medical applications too, such as detecting dark matter. “This has great promise to revolutionize both NMR and MRI,” Warren said. Congratulations to Warren, Simon Duckett (University of York) and Konstantin Ivanov (Novosibirsk State University, Russia). Read more about Warren's work and the Laukien Prize in Duke Today, here.
