Abstract

Electron Spin-Echo (ESE) measurements on mixed-stack charge transfer compound tetrathiafulvalene (TTF)-chloranil (CA) are reported. Below Neutral-Ionic transition temperature, the ESE signals related to the spin solitons were observed. Comparing the phase memory time with the inverse of the EPR line-width, it was found that a crossover from fast motion of the spin solitons to slow motion took place around 70K. In addition, the spin-lattice relaxation measurements suggested the thermal fluctuation of the dimerized lattice above 60K.
