We report millimeter-wave magneto-optical measurements on the high-spin molecule, Cr10(OMe)20(O2CCMe3)10. The dependence of the electron paramagnetic resonance as a function of orientation and temperature demonstrates that this compound behaves as a single molecule magnet, and exhibits one of the smallest zero-field splittings (D=-0.045±0.004 K) yet reported for such a system.

    Weak-ferromagnetic (or antiferromagnetic) resonance of Cu and electron spin resonance (ESR) of Gd are observed both in insulating GdSr2Cu2NbO8 and in superconducting GdSr2Cu2RuO8. The Cu resonance implies that the CuO2 planes are magnetic and indicates that the superconducting layer of...

    The main characteristics of a polarized 3He are maximum polarization, spin-up time, and cell lifetime. New hybrid K-Rb cells have higher polarization and shorter spin-up times. However, operating conditions also have a large impact on the operational characteristics of a cell. Here, hybrid K-Rb...

    The measurement of spin noise in nuclei was demonstrated on bulk samples more than two decades ago. An ensemble of spins can produce a coherent signal at the Larmor frequency of a static magnetic field, known as spin noise, an effect due to the statistical polarization of small ensembles. The...
