This workshop is part of the EU FET‐OPEN project Plasmon Enhanced Terahertz Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (PETER, https://www.peter‐instruments.eu/). It aims on reporting principles and achievements of the project and bringing together researchers from the fields of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR), plasmonics and Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM). 

The PETER project aims to develop a radically novel method for the local analysis of paramagnetic organic and inorganic species and materials with significantly enhanced sensitivity and unprecedented spatial resolution. Specifically, novel hardware and infrastructure based on the ground- breaking application of THz plasmonic antennas on surfaces (spectroscopy) and scanning probe tips (microscopy) is being developed, resulting in a strong local enhancement of the magnetic sensing field.
