Muon spin relaxation study of Zr(H2PO4)(PO4)·2H2O

Author affiliations


Muon spin relaxation has been used to study the muon dynamics in the layered zirconium phosphate Zr(H2PO4)(PO4)·2H2O as a function of temperature. Radiofrequency decoupling was used to establish the origin of the local dipolar field as coupling with 1H spins. Muons were trapped at two sites, one identified as HMuO and the other consistent with PO–Mu on the basis of their zero-field second moments. Although a small decrease in the local nuclear dipolar field was seen with temperature, the muons remained essentially static over the temperature range 20–300 K.
