Pulsed electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) using a modified Davies-type [Phys. Lett. 47A, 1 (1974)] sequence is employed to study the hyperfine (HF) structure of the photoexcited triplet state of pentacene dispersed in protonated and deuterated p-terphenyl single crystals. The strong electron spin polarization and long phase memory time of triplet pentacene enable us to perform the ENDOR measurements on the S=1 spin system at room temperature. Proton HF tensor elements and spin density values of triplet pentacene are extracted from a detailed angular-dependent study in which the orientation of the magnetic field is varied systematically in two different pentacene planes. Analysis reveals that the pentacene molecule is no longer planar in the p-terphenyl host lattice. The distortion is more pronounced in the deuterated crystal where the unit cell dimensions are slightly smaller than those of the protonated crystal.
