EPR – Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (Bldg. 70A)
The pulsed EPR in Bldg 70A is equipped with X- and Q-band EPR capability (Bruker Instruments (Billerica, MA) Elexsys 580 pulsed EPR spectrometer: dual-mode ER4116DM cavity, high sensitivity cavity ER4119HS, standar cavity ER 4102ST, X band ENDOR resonator E560D-P DICE and Q band ENDOR resonator EN5107D2).
It has an Oxford Instruments E900 helium flow cryostat that enables variable temperature measurements from 5K and above with a temperature controller, Oxford ITC 5035. For pulsed EPR measurements, there is a traveling wave tube amplifier (microwave frequency) from Applied System Engineering, INC and a radio wave frequency amplifier from Amplifier Research.
