The EMR group is part of the Department of Solid State Sciences of Ghent University and is mainly involved in the study of defects in solids, that are paramagnetic (have unpaired electrons) or that can be made paramagnetic by, e.g., exposure to ionizing radiation, thermal treatment, etc. The application field of EPR and related techniques is therefore very wide and extends far beyond (solid state) physics and includes for instance also liquids and gases. We invite you to have a look on this website at the numerous illustrations of the EMR potential. It will become clear that not only detailed, structural information can be obtained but that also quantitative determinations / applications in dosimetry and dating are possible.
