Electron paramagnetic resonance spectral studies on natural sapphire
Reddy, S. Lakshmi, Reddy, K. N. M., Reddy, N. C. G., Frost, R. L., & Endo, Tamio (2009) Electron paramagnetic resonance spectral studies on natural sapphire. Molecular Physics, 107(15), pp. 1537-1539.
EPR study of both blue and green sapphire samples confirms the presence of Cr(III) in four different octahedral sites. The g (1.98) value is the same but D values differ for the two the samples. The EPR spectra suggest that the blue sapphire contains more chromium than the green sapphire. No Fe(III) impurity was noted in the EPR spectrum.
