-band EPR spectrum of in single crystal along the axis, recorded at . and lines are hyperfine lines of individual ions at parallel and perpendicular orientations, respectively. The lines marked as and are due to dimers at parallel and perpendicular orientations for two spin transitions: and . The asterisks mark lines excited in pulse ESE experiments.

Temperature dependence of the dephasing time (phase memory time). The dashed line through the point at low temperatures, where spin diffusion dominates, is guide for the eyes only, whereas the solid line describes the spin-lattice process contribution to the ESE decay with temperature independent contribution from instantaneous diffusion (IDiff).
