Resonance techniques (RT)


The RTIL has high level instrumentation which can be used to tackle different problems in diverse areas of magnetism, including the application of different band EPR machines and NMR spectrometers with variable temperature, electrochemical and light irradiation facilities for characterisation of systems of different types. 


Detail of the energy pattern and electronic structure of molecular magnets in different phases (liquid, powder, crystals, polymeric dispersion, nanostructured)

Implement and develop new methodologies for increasing resolution and sensitivity, aimed at probing the smallest possible quantity of molecular magnets


EIMM members Involved: Florence (INSTM), Pavia (CNR-INFM), Manchester (MAN)
