Anomalous Muon Knight Shift Behavior in a Cd Single Crystal
For the positive muon implanted in a metal the precession frequency shift due to hyperfine fields can be measured with high precision. This provides means to obtain information about the local electronic structure of a hydrogen like impurity in any metal in the indefinitely dilute impurity concentration. Ref. 1 gives a summary of the muon Knight shift (KS) investigations in 18 nontransition (simple) metals and some transition metals and discusses the results in the context of the electronic structure of hydrogen in metals.
