He was born in London, to a Danish mother and an English father and won a scholarship to Westminster City school.
With the outbreak of the second world war, Bleaney was drafted into the Oxford-based Admiralty team which worked on the development of microwave techniques for radar. He made many contributions to this programme particularly in the development of Klystrons at 3cm and 1. After the war, Bleaney applied these new techniques to fundamental problems in physics. His first experiments were on the microwave spectra of gases and his first paper in this field reported measurements on the inversion spectrum of ammonia.
He soon turned his attention to magnetic materials. There was already considerable interest within the Clarendon in such materials for use in obtaining very low temperatures. He effectively invented the technique of paramagnetic resonance - sometimes called electron spin resonance - which was a parallel in some ways to the development of nuclear magnetic resonance at that time. However, the Russian group were unable to develop their ideas much further. Early experiments on some magnetic salts showed clear resonances but they tended to be broad and structureless.
This was due to interactions between the atomic magnets within the material, and to the relaxation of the magnetism through coupling to the heat bath of the crystal. The second of these obstacles was overcome by working at low temperatures to increase the spin-lattice relaxation time. The former was solved by diluting the crystals with non-magnetic ions leaving the magnetic sites isolated as occurs in gemstones like ruby and sapphire. From this time, Bleaney was able to explore a wide range of materials containing transition metals and rare earths.
The theoretical interpretation of these results was enhanced by a close collaboration with the group around Professor MHL Pryce, notably his student Anatole Abragam.
Together Abragam and Bleaney published a definitive summary of the results of this field in the page Electron Paramagnetic Resonance in Transition Ions Bleaney showed broad interests in other work at the Clarendon, notably in the low temperature group of Simon and Kurti.
This entailed a great deal of administration, not least because the Oxford physics department was dramatically expanding; and eventually a nuclear physics department and a theoretical physics department were separated from the Clarendon. Bleaney did not enjoy the heavy administrative load.
He suffered some bouts of ill health and, in , he stepped down early from the chair and returned to research. He held a Warren research fellowship of the Royal Society and subsequently a Leverhulme fellowship.
As well as a mentor of graduate students, Bleaney was a conscientious undergraduate teacher. He wrote with his wife an excellent text book, Electricity and Magnetism , known to generations of students as "B and B". He was elected to the Royal Society in , and became a corresponding member of the French Academy of Sciences in He was appointed CBE in Throughout his life he was a keen tennis player, and both he and Betty cycled around Oxford well into their 80s.
He was also a keen amateur musician. Betty and their two children survive him.
