Abstract:

The ERP lineshifts occurring in ruby when stressed with DC, modulated DC and AC fields are described. It is shown that the space charge effects which might influence the DC results can be overcome by modulating the stressing voltage. The lineshift sensitivity obtained agrees well with published values however, AC line broadening measurements yield figures which differ from the DC shifts by an unexplained factor of two. Computer-generated curves are presented to illustrate the mechanisms of line broadening.
