Samples the spin echo in the three-pulse DEER experiment to determine its precise location - DEER spin echo can be narrow and easy to miss. For high-spin electrons the echo may not be in the expected place. Idealized hard pulses are used, each pulse only affects its specific electron or transition, depending on the pulse operators supplied.




     parameters.ex_prob   - probe pulse operator

The echoes for DEER experiments with a two Cu(II) ions (top, examples/esr_solids/hard_3_pulse_echo_cu.m) and two Gd(III) ions (bottom, examples/esr_solids/hard_3_pulse_echo_gd.m) are shown below.
