Magnetic resonance methods are widely used to provide atomic level information on the structure and dynamics of chemical and biochemical systems, but often suffer from poor sensitivity. This review examines how optical excitation can provide increased electron spin-polarization, and how this can be used to increase sensitivity and/or information content in both Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy.
