Structure Determination by Using Pulsed ESR
Electron spin echo envelope modulation (ESEEM) method of pulsed electron spin resonance (ESR) technique is able to resolve weak hyperfine interaction which is hidden underneath the linebroadening in conventional ESR of continuous-wave (cw) mode. Several examples in which the ESEEM method is applied to elucidate the local structure of impurities and point-defects which exist in low concentrations are demonstrated.
