Our friend the muon ......
Muonium-defect interactions as well as muonium dynamics are being explored using Muon Spin Rotation/Relaxation/Resonance (MSR) spectroscopy. The current program takes advantage of the unique properties of the muon to probe the behaviour of the hydrogen-like atom in diamond.
