    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Single crystals of cystine dihydrochloride were irradiated at room temperature with monochromatic uv radiation. The optical bandwidth was about 20 Å for each wavelength used. Essentially two ESR centers were observed, the relative yield being approximately 1. One center is identified as the RS radical also detected after γ irradiation at room temperature, the second center is tentatively identified as a RS radical stabilized in an environment different from that of the first mentioned RS radical or alternatively as the RSS+R radical ion.
