Swiss scientist Richard Ernst has passed away at the age of 87, according to Swissinfo. The scientist died on June 4, but the family only reported his death this week.
Ernst received the Nobel Prize in 1991 for his “contributions to the development of high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.” This allowed in the future to create devices for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The publication Swissinfo writes that after that he was called the “father of MRI”.
Richard Ernst was also awarded the Wolf Prize in Chemistry (1991), the Horwitz Prize (1991) and the Marcel Benoit Prize (1986).
