Other Methods of Measuring the Spin Exchange Rates

  • Kev M. Salikhov


The modern theory of the manifestation of the saturation effect in the EPR spectra is described in detail. The theory predicts the formation of the coupled states of the microwave field and the spin system (spin polaritons) under the conditions of the manifestation of the saturation effect. It is shown that in strong microwave fields the frequency of polaritons and the condition of exchange narrowing depend on the amplitude of the microwave field.

The potential of double electron-electron resonance, electron spin echo, and the saturation-recovery method are briefly described. The effect of spin exchange on the saturation factor, which affects the magnitude of the effect of the dynamic polarization of nuclei, is examined in more detail. All these methods can complement each other well when studying spin exchange.
