Electron spin resonance (ESR) is a powerful spectroscopy method which allows to identify and characterize paramagnetic species present in a material as well as their interactions with their environment. Because of the weak spin-microwave coupling, conventional ESR spectroscopy has a low sensitivity, which has so far limited its use to samples of macroscopic size. In this talk, I will present how superconducting quantum circuits technology can be used to drastically enhance the sensitivity of the ESR detection. I will explore the development of a superconducting ESR spectrometer for measuring biological or chemical micron-scale samples.
