High-Frequency EPR of High-Spin Transition Metal Compounds

We are performing single crystal W-band (94 GHz) studies on different transition metal compounds, making use of the advantages conferred by the high field / high frequency and increased sensitivity conditions. The covered research area is quite divers, including magnetically diluted or concentrated systems, molecular magnets, compounds with large zero-field splitting, high spin, and/or integer spin.[1][2]
