Electron paramagnetic resonance of tow new paramagnetic centers, formed by non-Kramers ions of iron group in synthetic forsterite is studied at frequencies range 65-350 GHz. The measurements were performed at 4.2 K in magnetic fields up to 0.8 T. It was established that the first center is due to Ni2+ in the M1 position with inverse symmetry. The angles between projections of the principal magnetic axes of four magnetically non-equivalent centers and axis b of crystal lattice are +/- 49 degrees and +/- 7 degrees in the bs and ab planes respectively. The fine structure parameters of this center were measured to be D equals 230.5 Hz and E equals 4 GHz. For the second center the only resonance transition was observed with zero field splitting 96.5 GHz. We suppose that it is transition between +2 > and -2 > states of Fe(superscript 2+ ions in the M1 position. For this center magnetic axes are misaligned from the a axis on +/- 3.5 degrees and +/- 12.5 degrees in the ab and ac planes respectively. Direct measurement of the ZFS for non-Kramers ions in forsterite revealed additional signals at zero field.
