In order to have muon beam we travel to either  ISIS or PSI where we perform longitudinal and transverse field mSR experiments.
The data collected in these experiment are imported into Origin for analysis.


Origin 7.0

Origin 8.6

The experiment's data are imported into Origin worksheets and brought home for analysis. We have developed specialized macros under Origin, which are compiled as dll's, for Musr data analysis.


ISIS is ideal for systems where the muon has a long T1 or a narrow line width since data can be accumulated for 20 msec. The payoff is the low time resolution, which is worse than 0.1 msec. In ISIS we have access to longitudinal field of up to 4kG and a temperature range between 50mK and 1000K. The transverse field is limited to 600G and similar temperatures as in the longitudinal case

PSI is ideal for systems in which the muon has a short T1 or broad line width since the time resolution is better than 0.01 msec. However, data can be accumulated only for 10 msec. In PSI we have access to both longitudinal and transverse field up to 5T and temperature range between 50mK and 1000K.
