The ESR facility houses two instruments both of which are used to examine the structure and properties of metal-containing inorganic complexes, peptides, proteins, enzymes, nanoparticles, and biological membranes. The facility's Bruker ELEXSYS 580 X-band spectrometer operates in either continuous-wave or pulsed mode, with variable temperature control. The instrument is also capable of excitation at two frequencies thus enabling Double Electron-Electron Resonance (DEER) for measuring long distances between paramagnetic probes. The second instrument, a high-sensitivity Bruker EMX, is especially useful for the limited sample sizes often encountered in biological studies. The facility is managed by Chemistry Professor Glenn Millhauser.
