What is NMR?

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, or: NMR helps us determining the structure of molecules to help develop the materials, food and medicine of the future. NMR Spectroscopy is a technique that helps us understand the behaviour of atoms. Understanding the behaviour of atoms is crucial in understanding our world - because everything we know consists of atoms.

Film and animation combined

To introduce the NMR technique, we melted together beautiful film footage with a mystical, animated surrounding – visualising a fantasy world that is completely built up of matter (‘from living organisms to the air we breath’). The film footage was shot in front of a green screen – we even used a plastic cup to represent the floating matter.

NMR Facility

In order to create an exciting setting for the NMR facility we’ve used a two toned lighting scheme, creating a similar mystical surrounding as in the animated introduction. The lighting really captures the beauty of the NMR facility and its powerful magnet.
