LMU: Laboratory for Muon Spin Spectroscopy

Division of the PSI Department Research with Neutrons and Muons, NUM

µSR - Muon Spin Rotation, Relaxation or Resonance: A research tool using muons as sensitive local magnetic probes in matter.
  • Research at the LMU focuses mainly on magnetic properties of materials and on positive muons or muonium (bound state of a positive muon and an electron) as light protons or hydrogen substitutes in matter.
  • Worldwide unique: The Low-Energy Muon Beam and µSR Spectrometer for the study of thin films, layers and surfaces, and the Extraction of Muons On Request for high frequency resolution and slow relaxation measurements.



13th International Conference on Muon Spin Rotation, Relaxation and Resonance (μSR2014)

Together with the Universities of Zurich and Fribourg the Laboratory for Muon Spin Spectroscopy organizes the 13th International Conference on Muon Spin Rotation, Relaxation and Resonance in Grindelwald, Switzerland from June 1-6, 2014. μSR2014 provides a forum for researchers from around the world with interests in the applications of μSR to study a wide range of topics including condensed matter physics, materials and molecular sciences, chemistry and biology. It continues the series of international conferences on Muon Spin Rotation/Relaxation usually held every three years.

PSI summer school 2014

The PSI summer school 2014 on Condensed Matter Research will be organized at the Institut Montana in Zug, Switzerland from August 9-15, 2014. The topic of the school will be 'Exploring time, energy and length scales in condensed matter' and the school will be followed by hands-on practical training at the PSI large user facilities SINQ, SμS and SLS. Online registration and detailed information is available from the school's webpage.
