Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) Spectroscopy
The Eaton group develops new electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) methods and instrumentation to address significant biochemical and chemical problems. A major current emphasis is on EPR methods designed to improve sensitivity and solve biomedical problems. They are currently developing fully-digital EPR spectrometers as well as methods for in vivo study of the physiology of tumors in partnership with the researchers at the University of Chicago and the University of Maryland. The full team includes chemists, biochemists, physicists and engineers, and key instrumentation includes a state of the art Bruker BioSpin spectrometer and locally-constructed spectrometers.
