Kan's research interest is in the spin physics and instrumentation of dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) in solid state NMR. His goal is to improve the efficiency of solid state DNP under MAS through development of both EPR and NMR instruments, as well as use a wide variety existing magnetic resonance techniques to characterize and exploit the underlying mechanisms of DNP. Currently, his focus is on development of a low temperature (30K), high field (7T) pulsed EPR/DNP spectrometer with magic angle spinning capabilities.
