People starting to use EPR often find the interpretation of their EPR spectra a daunting task. The Bruker SpinFit and Anisotropic SpinFit simulation programs are great resources to make the task of interpretation easier. The intended audience is people currently working with EPR and need to interpret their spectra. People just starting out in EPR are also encouraged to participate.
We invite you to attend this series of six presentations to introduce you to using these programs in your work. The presentations are sequential, meaning each of them builds upon the previous presentation.
|February 26th at 10:00 AM EST||A general introduction to EPR simulations - This provides important concepts to fully benefit from the future practical demonstrations. It includes an introduction to the spin Hamiltonian, line shape models, as well as fitting. Emphasis is on solution state spectra.||
Dr. Ralph Weber, Dr. Boris Dzikovski, Dr. Kalina Ranguelova
|March 5th at 10:00 AM EST||A practical demonstration on simulating spin trapping data using SpinFit - This session introduces spin-trapping technique to detect and analyze short-lived radical species such as reactive oxygen species. Examples of EPR spectra with one and multiple spin-trapped radicals will give insight how to use integrated SpinFit library in the Bruker software followed by quantitative analysis.||Dr. Ralph Weber, Dr. Boris Dzikovski, Dr. Kalina Ranguelova||Register Now|
|March 12th at 10:00 AM EST||A practical demonstration on simulating common solution state spectra using SpinFit - This session will demonstrate how to use SpinFit and SpinCount modules to simulate and quantify organic radicals and transition metals in solutions based on various experimental data.||Dr. Ralph Weber, Dr. Boris Dzikovski, Dr. Kalina Ranguelova||Register Now|
|March 19th at 10:00 AM EST||An introduction to simulating solid-state spectra - Simulating solid-state spectra is very different from solution state spectra. Topics included here are powder patterns and averaging and additional line shape models.||Dr. Ralph Weber, Dr. Boris Dzikovski, Dr. Kalina Ranguelova||Register Now|
|March 26th at 10:00 AM EST||Starting an Anisotropic SpinFit simulation - This session will be focused in detail on two examples of using Anisotropic SpinFit. We show how to obtain spin-Hamiltonian information by simple line shape analysis and how to set the starting parameters for successful fitting using this information.||Dr. Ralph Weber, Dr. Boris Dzikovski, Dr. Kalina Ranguelova||Register Now|
|April 2nd at 10:00 AM EST||
A practical demonstration on simulating solid-state EPR spectra using Anisotropic SpinFit - Using examples of diverse spin systems, this session will show how to use Anisotropic SpinFit and SpinCount to simulate EPR spectra and to quantify paramagnetic species in the solid-state.
