Szalai is recognized for successfully partnering with industry to develop and commercially deploy technology that makes electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) accessible to a broad and diverse research community rather than the current handful of specialized groups. EPR is a powerful analytical tool that has applications ranging from quantum systems to biomacromolecules. Szalai has helped reduce the cost and complexity of such measurements by augmenting EPR with a versatile RF pulse-shaping system. The technology developed is being used in fields as diverse as radar and remote sensing.
