Electron Paramagnetic/Spin/Magnetic Resonance (EPR, also known as ESR or EMR, and complementary techniques like FMR, AFMR etc.) is a powerful spectroscopic technique that provides information about the structural and chemical properties of any object containing uncoupled electron spins (like ions of transition/rare earth metals, stable and transient free radicals, spin labels/probes/traps, structural/irradiation induced defects, conduction electrons etc.).
In conjunction with high resolution NMR, EPR is an additional powerful non-destructive method for analyzing structure and molecular dynamics.
Our facilities (building 29, room 008) include research grade continuous wave (CW) X-band (n = 9 - 10 GHz) digital EPR spectrometer Bruker EMX-220 equipped with Oxford ESR 900 (liquid He)/ Bruker ER 4121VT (liquid N2) variable temperature (3.8 K ≤ T ≤ 650 K) accessories and Agilent 53150A frequency counter; Tecmag LIBRA/NMRkitII multinuclear pulse NMR spectrometer; wide bore Oxford Instruments 360/89 (8.01 T, cryoshims only) superconducting magnet, variable field (0 - 1.4 T) Varian E-12 electromagnet; Oxford Instrument CF 1250 liquid He cryostat for variable temperature (3.8 K ≤ T ≤ 310 K) NMR measurements.
We provide EPR and solid state NMR spectroscopy and relaxometry studies for dozens of researchers from BGU and other Israeli Universities, as well research groups and hi-tech companies from around the world (USA, Germany, France, Japan, Poland, South Korea, Russia, Ukraine). We will be happy to assist you in conducting experiments which will meet your research needs. For more information regarding EPR/Solid State NMR studies using our facilities, please, contact:
