Abstract

Part I.
The magnetic resonance of triplet excitons in solid free radicals has been studied in both zero magnetic field and a high magnetic field. A discussion of the spin Hamiltonian for triplet excitons in zero field and high field is presented. Calculations of the second moment of the exciton resonances is given and compared for the two cases. The fine-structure splittings of triplet excitons in Wurster's blue perchlorate in a high magnetic field and in (0₃AsCH₃⁺ (TCNQ)₂⁻ in zero field have been determined and their temperature dependence is discussed. The temperature dependence of the line width is also given.

Part II.
A zero field magnetic resonance spectrometer has been constructed for use in the 10 - 100 Mc/sec frequency range. A marginal oscillator and bidirectional square wave field modulation are used.
