Optical Detection of Magnetic Resonance

Abstract. The combination of magnetic resonance with laser spectroscopy provides some interesting options for increasing the sensitivity and information content of magnetic resonance. This review covers the basic physics behind the relevant processes, such as angular momentum conservation during absorption and emission. This can be used to enhance the polarization of the spin system by orders of magnitude compared to thermal polarisation as well as for detection with sensitivities down to the level of individual spins. These fundamental principles have been used in many different fields. This review summarises some of the examples in different physical systems, including atomic and molecular systems, dielectric solids composed of rare earth and transition metal ions and semiconductors.
