Abstract/Description: A major issue in the field of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is the low sensitivity which can be achieved as a result of the small magnetic moment in nuclei. Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) increases NMR sensitivity through a process in which electron spins transfer their larger polarization to the spin of nuclei, and, therefore, create larger signals. To take advantage of this phenomenon, the MagLab has developed a DNP spectrometer at 14 T including sample holders, microwave components, and probes.My work, outlined in this thesis, was focused on improving the DNP probe hardware. These improvements include developing new sweep coils, which have a wider magnetic field amplitude and, therefore, cover more radicals, a modulation coil capable of high frequency modulation to improve in-situ EPR capabilities, and improved waveguide design around the sample to allow for 2D NMR experiments.
