Richard R. Ernst
Ernst was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1991 for his contributions towards the development of multidimensional, Fourier transform nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy while at Varian Associates, Palo Alto, California. This technique is very largely used in medicine to get precise images of the human body, and in such context is known as magnetic resonance imagery (MRI).
In the poster made by the Nobel Prize committee, Richard Ernst acknowledged that the idea he has developed originally came from the Belgian scientist Jean Jeener , professor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.
