From the Editor

According to the results of our 2011 salary survey, spectroscopists are a pretty happy lot. Nearly 85% of respondents said they are content with their current jobs (41% are "satisfied," 33% are "very satisfied," and another 11% are "extremely satisfied.") Almost as many, 77%, are happy with their current employer (42% satisfied, 22% very satisfied, and 13% extremely satisfied). This is true in spite of increasing stress, reported by 53%, and heavier workloads, reported by 65%.

Market Profile

March 01, 2011

One of the most critical components to the performance of any high-field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) system is the NMR probe. The probe is where all of the action happens within an NMR system, and they are offered in a wide variety of sizes and configurations for different applications. The aftermarket for NMR probes, alone, is quite a sizeable market, and will continue to be a major driver of the market.
