Hyperfine Interactions

Muonium states in zincblende-structured compounds

View publication


The authors present a list of results of μSR experiments in materials with the diamond and zincblende structure. Besides the muonium hyperfine parameters, additional information is tabulated: the formation probability for the different muon states, the highest temperatures at which muonium states have been observed and the types of transitions found to occur between these states. The muonium hyperfine parameters show a linear rise as a function of host ionicity from Ge to GaAs to ZnSe followed by a sharp drop to CuBr. © 1986 J.C. Baltzer A.G., Scientific Publishing Company.
