“Hyperpolarization gives new impetus to existing magnetic resonance applications and opens the door to exciting new possibilities,” says Professor Jörg Matysik. “I am very honoured to be part of this select team of international writers. We hope that this review work will facilitate the exchange of knowledge between the subfields of this broad topic in order to rapidly overcome existing challenges in magnetic resonance and enable new applications.”
In their article, the scientists provide a harmonised picture of the numerous methods and techniques that fall under the umbrella term hyperpolarization and also explain its origins. Technical requirements, typical applications and unsolved problems are also discussed. The authors cite a range of key areas for development, including “prolonging polarization lifetimes, making hyperpolarization techniques more generally applicable to chemical/biological systems [and] reducing the technical [...] requirements”.
