Fullerenes with μSR

  • Christof Niedermayer


The current status ofμSR results on muonium states in the pure fullerenes C60 and C70 is summarized. The hyperfine interaction between the unpaired electron and the muon provides unique information on the molecular dynamics and local electronic structure of the fullerenes. Recent results on the alkali doped C60 series are also presented.
