Dual Mode Cavity (ES-14040DMC)
The dual mode cavity (ES-14040DMC) is newly added to the lineup of ESR attachments (Figure 1). This cavity can detect ESR signals while applying microwave magnetic field (B1) from perpendicular or parallel direction against external magnetic field (B0). Since the spin transition probability changes depending on the B1 direction, this cavity can be used to observe not only allowed transitions but also forbidden transitions such as triplets (S = 1), integer spin systems and transition metal ions, etc.

Example of ESR measurement
Figure 2 shows ESR spectra of MnO (S = 5/2, I = 5/2) at room temperature. As shown in Figure 2(A), 6 allowed transitions of Mn2+ are clearly observed in the perpendicular mode. On the other hand, figure 2(B) shows 5 lines (*) with different intensity are mainly observed in the parallel mode, and 6 lines observed in the perpendicular mode are also appeared slightly. A new perspective to your sample might be obtained from ESR by using a dual mode cavity.
