    Abstract

    Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, as usually practiced, involves sweeping the magnetic field and not the frequency. In the first place this means that EPR spectra are not unique and will depend, in many cases, on the microwave frequency used. This paper focuses on what is measured and how well we understand what it is that is being measured. The paper outlines the principles that should be followed in setting up EPR spectrometers for quantitative intensity measurements, critical for dosimetry and dating, including adjustments to the microwave bridge, choice of microwave power, temperature stability and reproducibility.
