FIG. 1.

Energy level diagrams for the OE and SE. (a) Transition rates important for the OE. (b) Thermal equilibrium population for a two-level spin system. The spin population is depicted schematically in gray. [(c) and (d)] Saturation of the forbidden zero-quantum and double-quantum transitions leads to negative or positive enhancement through the SE.

FIG. 3.

Population distribution at thermal equilibrium for a general three-spin system (a). Saturation of the allowed EPR transitions for one of the dipolar coupled electrons leads to negative enhancement (b). Saturation of the transition corresponding to the second electron leads to positive enhancement (c).
