Welcome to cetRESav ! Research center for advanced ESR techniques!
The research center for advanced ESR techniques (CetRESav) from the National Institute of Materials Physics conducts basic and applied researches in condensed matter physics , materials science and related scientific domains by developing and employing advanced Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) / Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) methods and techniques.
The research staff of CetRESav has extensive expertise and internationally recognized scientific results in the investigation by multifrequency and multiresonance ESR techniques of paramagnetic (intrinsic and impurity related) point defects, as well as of radiation induced defects in (nano)crystalline insulating and wide band-gap semiconductors. It has also extensive experience in the characterization by ESR spectroscopy of a wide range of materials (glasses, catalysts, laser active materials, diamond-like superhard materials, biomolecules, etc.) in correlation with structural (XRD, TEM/HRTEM) and optical (emission and absorption) techniques. CetRESav aims to develop and support the use of advanced ESR methods and techniques in scientific research in the fields of physics, materials science, chemistry and biology by extending the collaboration with research centers, Universities and the private economical sector from Romania and foreign countries. CetRESav has been established on Sept. 1st, 2009 in the frame of the project
PNII/65/CPI/2007 : “Modernization and development of advanced ESR techniques in NIMP”, Project Director : Dr. S. V. Nistor.
