High-Field / High-Frequency EPR spectroscopyi in Field and Frequency Domain

The main focus of his group is the development of High-Frequency Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (HFEPR) and Frequency Domain Magnetic Resonance (FDMR) spectroscopy for a wide range of applications, ranging from bio-inorganic chemistry to solid state physics, with a special focus on 2D materials and electron spin dynamics investigation. The group is hosted by Prof. Joris van Slageren, with whom we strongly collaborate.
