EPR Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Research Center

School Affiliated departments and LAS


Two instruments are available for use presently.

Varian E-line 12" Century Series X-band CW EPR (VarianXBand)

Varian E-line 12 inch Century Series X-band CW EPR

(Located in 14D Medical Sciences Building)

This instrument has an APD helium cryostat, E238 TM110 cavity, E-229 Goniometer, and a zero-field sweep through power supply.

The Varian X-band is normally setup up to do RT/LN2 work. If you are interested in running experiments at liquid helium temperatures you should give advance notice to staff at least a week in advance so we can setup the cryostat. We will also block out time for exclusive use of the helium system and encourage other groups wishing to do liquid helium experiments to run during this time.

Users are expected to arrange for all supplies. Quartz EPR tubes can be ordered from Wilmad Lab Glass and liquid Helium is available from the Physics liquefier in the NW corner of the 1st floor of Loomis Lab.
