Development of EPR techniques for biosystem applications.

EPR & ESEEM techniques

The aim to develop EPR spectroscopic methods for characterization of the structure and dynamics of biological radical and radical pair systems runs parallel to the system characterization aims. An important component of this effort is hardware, with the home-constructed pulsed-EPR spectrometer as core. We have also developed a suite of sophisticated, yet user-friendly, graphical user interface (gui)-driven software for simulations of the pulsed- and continuous-wave-EPR experiments in disordered and orientation-selected systems. All software is coded in Matlab (MathWorks, Natick, MA), and can be run on PC or Macintosh computers.

Our software is freely available to other researchers upon request, and it includes a tutorial with test cases. Please see the SOFTWARE page for more information.
