Abstract
Using the principles of quasi-optics, a high resolution ESR spectrometer operating at 250GHz has been constructed. It has been used to study the temperature dependent linewidths of PDT, a nitroxide spin probe, over a range of temperatures for which motional narrowing theory is valid. The narrowest lines that we have studied to date are 89 microtesla (890 mG) peak to peak in a Larmor field of 8.9 tesla and demonstrate the resolution of the spectrometer. We have studied 0.5mM PDT in toluene-d8, an isotropic solvent, and 2.0mM PDT in phase V, a thermotropic liquid crystal, in order to compare our results with careful work at X-band (9.5 GHz).
