Richard Ernst QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A brief visit to Nepal started my insatiable love for Asian art.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
At the age of 13, I found in the attic a case filled with chemicals, remainders of an uncle who died in 1923 and was, as a metallurgical engineer, interested in chemistry and photography.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
At the same time, it occurred to me that the 2D spectroscopy principle could also be applied to NMR imaging, previously proposed by Paul Lauterbur.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
During my last years at Varian (1966-68), we developed numerous computer applications in spectroscopy for automated experiments and improved data processing.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Experiments were not attempted at that time, we did not believe in the usefulness of the concept anyway, and I finished my thesis in 1962 with a feeling like an artist balancing on a high rope without any interested spectators.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Finally in the summer of 1974, we tried our first experiments in desperate need of results to be presented at the VIth International Conference on Magnetic Resonance in Biological Systems, Kandersteg, 1974.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
From then on, the development of multi-dimensional spectroscopy went very fast, inside and outside of our research group.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
However, I survived and started to read all chemistry books that I could get a hand on, first some 19th century books from our home library that did not provide much reliable information, and then I emptied the rather extensive city library.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
I am not surprised that they show no intention to follow in my footsteps, although if I had a second chance myself, I would certainly try to repeat my present career.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
I became almost immediately fascinated by the possibilities of trying out all conceivable reactions with them, some leading to explosions, others to unbearable poisoning of the air in our house, frightening my parents.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
I had the great luck to grow up, together with two sisters, in a town that combined in a unique way artistic and industrious activities.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
I recognized that teaching and research institutions vitally depend on the involvement of active scientists also in management functions.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
I thus decided to leave the university forever and tried to find an industrial job in the United States.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
I wanted to understand the secrets behind my chemical experiments and behind the processes in nature.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
In parallel, we developed the theoretical background for the experiments we had in mind as well as for the optimum performance of the instruments.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
In recent years, more and more of my time has become absorbed by administrative work for the research council of ETH-Z of which I am presently the president.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Invaluable art collections and a small but first rank symphony orchestra carry the fame of Winterthur far across the borders of Switzerland.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Much of his and also my time was spent on designing and building advanced electronic equipment for improved NMR spectrometers.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
My father, Robert Ernst, was teaching as an architect at the technical high school of our city.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
My own work dealt with the construction of high sensitivity radio frequency preamplifiers and in particular high sensitivity probe assemblies, initially for a 25 MHz, later for a 75 MHz proton resonance spectrometer.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
On the theoretical side, I was concerned with stochastic resonance.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Playing the violoncello brought me into numerous chamber and church music ensembles, and stimulated my interest in musical composition that I tried extensively while in high school.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Signal-to-noise ratio calculations and optimizations were daily routine as NMR suffers from a disappointingly low sensitivity that severely limits its applications.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Soon, I knew that I would become a chemist, rather than a composer.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
The goal set by Hans Primas was the usage of random noise for the excitation of nuclear magnetic resonance, following the famous concepts of Norbert Wiener for the stochastic testing of non-linear systems.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Thus, after finishing high school, I started with high expectations and enthusiasm to study chemistry at the famous Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
We developed at that time also stochastic resonance as an alternative to pulse FT spectroscopy employing binary pseudo-random noise sequences for broadband excitation, correlating input and output noise.
Quotation of Richard Ernst
Weston Anderson was on his way to invent Fourier transform spectroscopy in order to improve the sensitivity of NMR by parallel data acquisition.
