Micro Electron Spin Resonance spectrometer for radical species
Bruker

The microESR is a small, portable research grade instrument. The spectrometer has a mass of only 10 kg and a 30.5 x 30.5 x 30.5 cm3 foot print. It can easily fit in a fume hood or glove box, or be transported to the field. It requires no special installation or regular maintenance.

The microESR is also an ideal teaching tool for undergraduate chemistry labs. This instrument enables classroom demonstrations of both simple topics such as free radicals in everyday life to far less intuitive subjects including electron density, spin-orbit coupling, spin-spin exchange, and forbidden transitions. The Education Package is a very good investment for Chemistry Departments as there are a wide range of labs and subjects that can be addressed with the microESR.

  • Operating Frequency: X-Band​
  • Continuous Wave
  • Field Sweep Range: 500 G centered at g=2
  • Spectrum simulation and fitting
  • Easily run samples at liquid nitrogen temperature

Research Facility



Verschuren Centre Laboratory
Cape Breton University
Sydney
Nova Scotia (NS)

The Verschuren Centre for Sustainability in Energy and the Environment at Cape Breton University is a service provider for commercially focused Clean Tech Solutions. Furthermore, it is a hub for collaborative research, development and demonstration. The Centre was established in 2009 to find innovative and sustainable solutions to energy and environmental issues and is uniquely positioned to address these challenges. Located on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, home to world-class natural resources and Canada’s most progressive climate change laws, the Centre is positioned to not only undertake directly relevant research, but to lead its application and governance. Verschuren Centre faculty, staff and students draw inspiration from a collaborative approach to research, a diversely international campus population, the Island’s remarkable ecosystems, and the Centre’s design: one of the most sustainable university laboratories in Canada.
