LMU: Laboratory for Muon Spin Spectroscopy

Department of the PSI Division 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 (LEM) beam and µSR Spectrometer for the study of thin films, layers and surfaces;
    the high-field instrument (HAL-9500) equipped with specially designed detectors to perform studies in fields up to 9.5 Tesla and at very low temperatures;
    the combination of very-high pressures (up to 2.8 GPa) combined with sub-Kelvin temperatures (GPD);
    and the extraction of Muons On REquest (MORE) for high frequency resolution and slow relaxation measurements.
