Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Facility

In 2005, the Chemistry Department at UMass-Amherst received a major NSF-CRIF grant that enabled the purchase of a Bruker Elexsys E-500 electron spin resonance system to replace its aging ESP-300E X-band spectrometer.

It has both X-band (9.5 GHz) and Q-band (34 GHz) capability over 0-12000 gauss, with variable temperature attachments allowing X-band measurements from 4.2-475 K, and Q-band from 4.2-300 K. Several types of cavities are available (although ENDOR at present is not available), including one that allows X-band and Q-band in situ photolysis capability.
