Typical applications are for thin film NMR including:
- In the paint industry: for investigation of the efficacy of solvent borne coatings
- In the wood industry: for monitoring curing and moisture penetration
- In the pharmaceuticals industry: for measuring absorption of chemicals though the skin
- In the cosmetics industry for imaging and measurement the absorption of cosmetics into the skin
- In the construction industry for measure of moisture penetration and degradation of concrete
- Many other applications to monitor diffusion and profile T1 and T2 over depth and time

- The unique |B| gradient allows precise planar imaging of thin films
- It is smaller and cheaper
- The gradient G in the same direction of the B0 allows the use of efficient RF coils
1997 - First GARField designed by Dr Peter Aptaker in conjunction with Dr Paul Glover, University of Surrey (UniS).
2002 - The openGARField designed by Dr Peter Aptaker, for Prof Peter McDonald (UniS) to address restrictions in sample size and access.
See, for example, "A Novel high-gradient permanent magnet for the profiling of planar films and coatings", P.M. Glover, P.S.Aptaker, J.R. Bowler, E. Ciampi and P.J. McDonald, J. Mag. Res, 139, 90-97 (1999)
openGARField Key Innovations
Laplacian's GARFieldField is an open access implementation designed to address larger samples, such as those required by timber and cosmetics applications.
- Extra large sample clearance (30 mm)
- Open-access (ideal for timber, cosmetics)
- Dual sample regions with different G/B
