On the possibility of studying crystal field levels and excitations by μ+SR spectroscopy

  • A. Yaouanc
Local Fields of μ+ in Solids


We point out thatμ+SR relaxation timesT1 andT2 measured in metallic magnetic materials can sometimes be expressed in terms of the spin-spin correlation functions of the magnetic ions. We calculate these functions in a random phase approximation and notice they can strongly depend on the crystal field levels and excitations of the magnetic ions. The shortcomings of this approximation are discussed.
