Jonathan F. Reichert
Founder and President, Senior Physicist
Jonathan began TeachSpin in 1992, only intending to build an instrument that would make it possible for every college or university, no matter what the expertise of its faculty, to teach Pulsed NMR as a standard advanced laboratory experiment. In the process of building that first instrument, he discovered a mission. TeachSpin is dedicated to creating rugged, reliable, and affordable hands-on instruments that any physicist, no matter what his or her area of expertise, can incorporate into an advanced laboratory program. In addition to designing instruments from his own repertoire, TeachSpin has developed exciting collaborations that have enabled us to offer a broader range of experiments.
In 2014 Jonathan created the Jonathan F. Reichert Foundation dedicated to"enhancing advanced laboratory instruction" and gifted TeachSpin to the new foundation. All profits generated from the sale of TeachSpin apparatus go to the Foundation to support advanced laboratory instruction.
