Materials for future electronics can be studied with muons. In this interview, researchers Alex Amato and Thomas Prokscha of the Laboratory for Muon Spin Spectroscopy at NUM explain the special characteristics of these elementary particles.
Thomas Prokscha from the Laboratory for Muon Spin Spectroscopy LMU and Head of the LEM Group has been announced as the new President of the International Society for μSR Spectroscopy (ISMS)
at the 14th International Conference on Muon Spin Rotation Relaxation and Resonance (μSR2017) in Sapporo, Japan.
Rhea Stewart from the University of St Andrews, UK, has been honoured with an ISMS Young Scientist Award
at the 14th International Conference on Muon Spin Rotation Relaxation and Resonance (μSR2017) in Sapporo, Japan,
for her exceptional oral presentation entitled “Anomalous Meissner Screening Probed using Low Energy Muon Spin Spectroscopy”. The Low Energy µSR
experiments have been performed at the LEM facility of the Swiss Muon Source SµS.
