This paper reports the experimental results on paramagnetic properties of carbon-doped titanium dioxide. The electron paramagnetic resonance study of the samples has been carried out both in dark and under illumination. The nature of defects and their dynamics under illumination of carbon-doped TiO2 samples is discussed.
