Muon-spin-rotation studies of organic magnets

Abstract:

A muon is an unstable spin-1/2 particle with a lifetime of 2.2 μs. Beams of spinpolarized positive muons can be prepared at accelerator facilities and then subsequently implanted in various types of condensed matter. Both the time and direction dependence of the subsequent positron emission can be monitored. This allows the precession and relaxation of the average muon-spin polarization to be measured and the local magnetic field in the sample to be directly inferred. The muon thus behaves es...
