Zero-field spin depolarization of low-energy muons in ferromagnetic nickel and silver metal


Saadaoui, H; Salman, Z; Prokscha, T; Suter, A; Wojek, B M; Morenzoni, E (2012). Zero-field spin depolarization of low-energy muons in ferromagnetic nickel and silver metal. Physics Procedia, 30:164-167.

Abstract

We present zero-fieldmuon-spindepolarization measurements in nickel and silver performed using low-energymuon-spin relaxation technique.Ni or Ag are usually used in this depth-resolved technique as a backing material to enable background subtraction when studying small crystals or materials with weak magnetism. The depolarization rate of the asymmetry in silver and that of the slow relaxing part of the asymmetry in nickel are small(≤ 0.05 μs−1), and weakly temperature and energy-dependent.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
