Some examples from muon spin rotation

  • Erik Karlsson
Muon Spin Rotation


The method of μSR is briefly described and its potential in the field of solidstate physics (especially metal physics) is discussed. Some examples from the fields of magnetism, spin relaxation and particle diffusion in metals are shown and comparisons with conventional hyperfine interaction methods are made for some areas of application.
