Material studies with spin polarized muons as magnetic microprobes

As a laser scientist I would like to concentrate in the seminar on the new techniques using muSR in conjunction with a simultaneous laser excitation of the sample with applications in chemistry, semiconductor physics, spintronics etc. RIKEN muon facility is also unique in the world in the development of laser based technique for slowing down (or cooling) muons from 4.1 MeV to eV level that allows muon implantation near surfaces with nanometre resolution and extension of the muSR technique to studying small samples and thin multilayered films.
The applications do not end there: the sub eV energy muon beam would be a perfect source for stringently testing the Standard Model by measuring the Anomalous Magnetic Moment of the Muon (g-2) to unprecedented precision.
