The in situ electron-spin resonance of a voltage-biased NbAuNb Josephson junction is reported. The Au barrier is doped with Gd or Er167 ions. Sharp resonances appear in the I-V curves at frequencies equivalent to the crystal-field splitting of AuGd (1.0 and 1.7 GHz) and to the hyperfine splitting of AuEr167 (2.87 GHz). The principle of this new type of ESR-Josephson-junction spectrometer, as well as its application, is discussed.
