    • Abstract


      ESR and optical absorption studies have been carried out on Cu2+-doped lithium hydrazinium sulphate single crystals at 303 K. The spin-Hamiltonian parameters evaluated indicate a N2O2 square planar environment for Cu2+ ion in this lattice. The correlation ofESR and crystal structure data leads us to conclude that Cu2+ ion enters the lattice interstitially. Charge compensation is achieved by the release of protons. Using the optical absorption andESR data, bonding parameters and orbital reduction factors are also evaluated.
