The goal of Professor Reimer's research is to apply the principles and methods of spectroscopy toward societal problems, including alternative energy, materials and sensors for energy conservation, molecular imaging, and nuclear spintronics. His group consists of experimentalists that use many different tools for their research, yet retain special expertise and interest in magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy and imaging methods.

Researchers at UC Berkeley and the City College of New York are using lasers to control the spin state of semiconductor materials, a development that could lead to the creation of even faster and smaller electronic devices. The researchers hope to see spintronics move beyond memory devices to the logic circuits that are the heart of modern computers.
The promise of ultrafast quantum computing has moved a step closer to reality with a technique to create rewritable computer chips using a beam of light. College of Chemistry professor Jeffrey Reimer and researchers from The City College of New York used light to control the spin of an atom’s nucleus in order to encode information.
Researchers at Berkeley and other universities to find ways to capture carbon dioxide, produced by burning coal and natural gas, from the waste stream of power plants so that it can be sequestered underground.
