Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Room

The Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Room provides support to research projects of the chemistry department as well as other departments in chemistry, physics, material science, and biology. Electron Paramagnetic Resonance is a spectroscopic technique for studying molecules that contain unpaired electrons, typically transition-metal ions and organic radicals, yielding structural and dynamic information. The EPR room is equipped with a Bruker EMX X-band EPR spectrometer with liquid-helium low temperature (down to 4K) accessories. Frank Gao is currently in charge of the spectrometer, with Professor Kenneth Caulton as the faculty adviser.
