The paramagnetic resonance of dilute Ce3+ ions in the bulk paramagnetic host Tb3Ga5O12 is separated from the host response by means of optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR) using the magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) of the absorption. This result shows that it is possible in principle to extend by means of the ODMR of the absorption the regime of paramagnetic resonance detection of impurity ions to magnetic hosts, which strongly interact with the microwave field and, hence, make the impurity signals unobservable by means of conventional EPR. The observed ODMR signals are attributed to Tb3+ and Ce3+ ions by correlation with the optical bands of these species. By means of ODMR via the Faraday effect it is shown that this effect is due to transitions between Tb levels. The identification of the observed magnetic resonance structures is confirmed by calculations based on known information on Tb3+ and Ce3+ in diamagnetic hosts. The role of molecular fields is discussed.
