    Tiny magnets mimic steam, water and ice

    Researchers at PSI created a synthetic material out of 1 billion tiny magnets. Astonishingly, it now appears that its magnetic properties change with the temperature, so that it can take on different states.

  • 06.08.2015From: NMI3Magnets made of non-magnetic metals
    Magnets made of non-magnetic metals

    Muons were essential to show how non-magnetic metals become magnetic. The results of the experiments at PSI were published in Nature.

    Magnetic Resonance and Muons – A Complementary View of Materials

    A one-day meeting will be held on the 15th December 2014 at 28 Portland Place, London to discuss the complementarity of muon techniques with well-established magnetic resonance methods. Presentations will cover many aspects of condensed matter physics and chemistry, with a particular focus on highlighting the unique insight muon measurements bring to this area of science. Further details and on-line registration can be found on the meeting website.

    2014 Yamazaki Prize awarded to Professor Roberto De Renzi

    The winner of the 2014 Yamazaki Prize for muon science is Professor Roberto De Renzi.

    Roberto De Renzi is Professor of Physics at the University of Parma and is recognised for his sustained and exceptional contributions to the development of the µSR technique to investigate solid-state physics. Roberto began his µSR career at CERN and has been a long-time user of the muon facilities at ISIS and PSI, as well as performing many pioneering NMR experiments at his lab in Parma. His work has made effective bridges between NMR and muon techniques and he is particularly well known for his work in magnetism and superconductivity.

    13th International Conference on Muon Spin Rotation, Relaxation and Resonance (µSR2014)

    The 13th International Conference on Muon Spin Rotation, Relaxation and Resonance (µSR2014) will be held in Grindelwald, Switzerland, from Monday, June 1st to Friday, June 6th, 2014. It is organized by the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI), the University of Zurich and the University of Fribourg. The conference provides a forum to researchers from around the world with interests in the applications of µSR to study a wide range of topics including condensed matter physics, materials and molecular sciences, chemistry and biology. The Conference will consist of invited and contributed talks as well as poster sessions.

    Muon spectroscopy training school

    ISIS runs training schools for PhD students and Post-Doctoral researchers on how to use muons as a research tool. Participants are given a variety of lectures and workshops on the muon technique, as well as hands-on experience of muon experiments.

  • 17.09.2012From: ISIS MuonsFrontiers of muon spectroscopy – symposium and user meeting
    Frontiers of muon spectroscopy – symposium and user meeting

    A symposium discussing current research with muons across various disciplines, held at St Hugh’s College, Oxford. The meeting was held in recognition of 25 years of muon science at ISIS and to mark the recent retirement of Steve Cox. Proceedings of the meeting will be available in Physica Scripta.
