Quantum magnetism probed with muon-spin relaxation

Abstract:

This thesis presents the results of muon-spin relaxation (µ+SR) studies into magnetic materials, and demonstrates how these results can be exploited to quantify the materials’ low moments and reduced dimensionality.

Dipole-field simulations, traditionally used to estimate likely muon sites within a crystal structure, are described. A novel Bayesian approach is introduced which allows bounds to be extracted on magnetic moment sizes and magnetic structures—prev...
