This book delivers an update on recently developed methods, such as rapid-scan ESR and computational modeling in ESR, as well as up-to-date listings of transition-ion data on spin Hamiltonian parameters and hyperfine splittings and g-factors for aminoxyl radicals.
Sushil Misra has done extensive experimental and theoretical research in the area of electron spin resonance (ESR) for the last 28 years. Currently, he is a collaborating faculty member at the Advanced Center for Electron Spin Research technology at Cornell University. He has written many review articles and book chapters on the subject and published over 225 papers in refereed journals in the field of ESR. As a specialist frequently invited to international conferences and his involvement with the International EPR Society he not only contributed a significant portion to the Handbook on Electron Spin Resonance, volume 2, but also published another book with Wiley-VCH entitled "Multifrequency Electron Paramagnetic resonance: Theory and Applications", covering a large number of recently developed main topics in ESR. With a background in physics, chemsitry, and bio-chemistry the author team combines a strong expertise in developing EPR instrumentation and applying it to condensed matter, proteins, and even for in-vivo studies.
