Abstract

During the period 1995-2011 the sub-discipline of solid-state NMR grew enormously as represented by more than 30,000 publications, numerous conferences, and a burgeoning population of young researchers. This article seeks to summarize the trends of these researches in the area of materials chemistry, engineering, and physics. These trends are found to be based upon three pillars: a strong and evolving base of fundamental science, a clear connection to emerging computation and communication technologies, and the perspicacity of researchers in the fields of materials science.
