Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Bruker EMX EPR Spectrometer

Our Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) facility was upgraded in Fall 2000. The Bruker EMX EPR spectrometer (shown above) is a state of the art computer interfaced instrument, which is relatively simple to operate. For low-temperature measurements, the probe can be cooled with an Oxford Cyrostat with liquid nitrogen or liquid helium. Students performing research on transition metal complexes with unpaired electrons or organic radicals find this tool invaluable in their work. For more information on the Bruker EMX or for an introduction to EPR, visit the EPR Division of Bruker.
