High pressure μSR studies
The high pressureμSR spectrometer  formerly located at CERN has been transferred to theμE1-beamline at PSI and put back into operation with only minor modifications. The essential features of the high pressure apparatus are described below. The instrument covers a pressure range up to 0.7 GPa which can be extended to 1.4 GPa depending on the design of the high pressure cell. First measurements at PSI were successfully carried out with a single crystalline sample of Gd metal. New developments in high pressure cell design are presented. They are expected to further improve the signal/background ratio and to extend the pressure range to 1 GPa. One type of cell will allow temperatures above 380 K.
