This paper deals with the analysis of the temperature dependence of high-frequency EMR (HF-EMR) spectra due to Mn3+ and Mn4+ ions in the lithium manganese spinel LiMn2O4. A range of powder samples obtained by the sol-gel method with calcinations in several temperature ranges were prepared for this study. Based on the initial characterization carried out by a number of techniques, the physicochemical and structural properties of the samples were earlier determined. Independently, temperature magnetization and HF-EMR measurements were carried out. The EMR spectra vary strongly between samples, indicating possible structural or chemical changes. Quantitative analysis of the temperature dependence of the HF-EMR spectra due to Mn3+ and Mn4+ ions in LiMn2O4 is presented in this paper. The spectral analysis concerns the line shape, linewidth, intensity and g-factors. Fittings using the Lorentzian spectral shape and, to a certain extent, the Gaussian spectral shape have been carried out in order to parameterize the temperature dependence of the HF-EMR spectra. This parameterization of the HF-EMR experimental data enables a deeper characterization of the samples. Subsequently, a better insight into the role of the Mn3+ and Mn4+ ions in accounting for the characteristics most suitable for application of LiMn2O4 as a cathode material may be gained.
