Electron Magnetic Resonance hosts a variety of magnetic resonance techniques associated with the electron.
The EMR Facility provides unique instruments for Electron Magnetic Resonance studies of paramagnetic centers, magnetic molecules, and magnetic materials at very high magnetic fields and frequencies.The most popular of those techniques is Electron Paramagnetic/Spin Resonance (EPR/ESR). In simplified terms, EPR/ESR can be performed on any sample that has unpaired electron spins.
This facility provides researchers with a large range of applications in physics, materials science, chemistry and biology, including studies of impurity states, molecular clusters, antiferromagnetic, ferromagnetic and thin film compounds, natural or induced radicals, optically excited paramagnetic states, electron spin-based quantum information devices, transition-metal based catalysts; and for structural and dynamical studies of metallo-proteins, spin-labeled proteins and other complex bio-molecules and their synthetic models.
