Roberts, John D., 1918-
Oral history interview with John D. Roberts, 2007 July 27.
This is an information discussion about Professor John D. Robert's work in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). It includes: how he got acquainted with quantum mechancis. A story about Francis Bitter's work with a carbon-13 sample borrowed from Roberts. Collaboration with Varian on building new spectrometers. Ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) spectroscopy in comparison with NMR. Influence of Felix Bloch's explanation of the Bloch equations on Roberts. Influence of a series of lectures that Edward Purcell gave on Roberts. Description of NMR magnet stabilization. The origin of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Roberts' work with protein NMR.
American chemist; Ph.D. from University of California, Los Angeles (1944); held several positions at the California Institute of Technology; made contributions to the integration of physical chemistry, spectroscoy and organic chemistry for the understanding of chemical reaction rates.
