Pulse dipolar spectroscopy (PDS) in Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) is the method of choice for determining the distance distribution function for mono-, bi- or multi- spin-labeled macromolecules and nanostructures. PDS acquisition schemes conventionally use uniform sampling of the dipolar trace, but non-uniform sampling (NUS) schemes can decrease the total measurement time or increase the accuracy of the resulting distance distributions. NUS requires optimization of the data acquisition scheme, as well as changes in data processing algorithms to accommodate the non-uniformly sampled data. We investigate in silico the applicability of the NUS approach in PDS, considering its effect on random, truncation and sampling noise in the experimental data. Each type of noise in the time-domain data propagates differently and non-uniformly into the distance spectrum as errors in the distance distribution. NUS schemes seem to be a valid approach for increasing sensitivity and/or throughput in PDS by decreasing and redistributing noise in the distance spectrum so that it has less impact on the distance spectrum.
