Micro-coil detection of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance for nanofluidic samples

Shibahara, A., Casey, A., Lusher, C., Saunders, J., Aßmann, C., Schurig, T. and Drung, D

We have developed a novel dc SQUID system with a micro-coil input circuit to act as a local probe of quantum matter and nanosystems. The planar niobium micro-coil pickup loop is located remotely from the SQUID, coupled through a superconducting twisted pair. A high degree of coupling between the coil and the region of interest of similar dimensions (up to ∼100 microns) can be achieved. We report nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurements to characterise the sensitivity of these coils to 3He in the gas phase at 4.2 K in a 30 mT magnetic field.
