This review chronicles the development of the use of ESR in applied science since 1975, with particular emphasis on the state of the art in the period 1987–1997.
The scope of application of ESR spectroscopy has greatly expanded with the advent of its widespread use in radiation exposure dating around 1980 and its use in retrospective dosimetry since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.
