Original Paper


A method for the determination of number of spins from EPR spectra with a high level of noise is proposed. The method is based on a convolution of the experimental spectrum with the spectrum of the same shape characterized by a high signal-to-noise ratio. It was shown that the convolution technique is rather robust to the presence of additive noise in examined EPR spectrum.
