7 conduction band valence band phonons T spin (LH 2 bath) T res In general: T res ≠ T spin T res > T spin In fact we want: Temperature Constant illumination generates new charge carriers, leading to steady state with constant density of “hot” electrons As hot electrons cascade toward the lattice temperature, they emit phonons at constant rate.

15 Experimental - EPR

16 EDMR at T = 1.37 K Xe discharge lamp EDMR at different temperatures Experimental - EDMR D. R. McCamey, J. van Tol, G. W. Morley, C. Boehme, eprint arXiv: v1 (2008)

17 Conclusion

18 NMR on 31 P nucleus to actually “see” the nuclear polarization. Future Experiments

19 Comparison of polarization measured using EDMR vs EPR at different intensities of light (Hg discharge) at T = 3 K. Hg discharge has higher spectral temperature, yielding higher polarizations (P=-24% at 3K vs -6% at 3K for Xe lamp) independent of intensity for most part. Polarization with ESR  45% that measured with EDMR Experimental - EDMR vs. ESR
