optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR)

Also contains definitions of: ADMR, DEDMR, DFDMR, PDMR, RYDMR
A double resonance technique in which transitions between spin sublevels are detected by optical means. Usually these are sublevels of a triplet and the transitions are induced by microwaves. For different types of optical detection the following expressions are used: ADMR (absorption), DEDMR (delayed emission, non-specified), DFDMR (delayed fluorescence), FDMR (fluorescence), PDMR (phosphorescence). If a reaction yield is followed the expression RYDMR (reaction yield detected magnetic resonance) is used.
