A muon experimental facility, known as the Muon Science Establishment (MUSE), is one of the user facilities at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex, along with those for neutrons, hadrons, and neutrinos. The MUSE facility is integrated into the Materials and Life Science Facility building in which a high-energy proton beam that is shared with a neutron experiment facility delivers a variety of muon beams for research covering diverse scientific fields. In this review, we present the current status of MUSE, which is still in the process of being developed into its fully fledged form.

After the discovery of X-ray by Rontgen, mankind got a new eye to see through things. This fluoroscopy, so-called X-ray radiography that gives the density distribution of the inside of an object, has been applied to the vast research field such as natural/material/medical sciences, industry and technology. The recent development on the intense pulsed muon source at J-PARC MUSE (rate of 106 cps for 60 MeV/c) enabled us to pioneer a new frontier of analytical sciences. Here we report on a non-destructive elemental analysis by using muon capture. Controlling muon's momentum from 32.5 to 57.5 MeV/c. we successfully demonstrated a depth-profile analysis of light elements from several mm-thick layered materials, and non-destructive bulk analyses of meteorites containing organics. Now it is a beginning to utilize a new eye, muon radiography.

Local magnetic field and positive muon diffusion in yttrium iron garnet

Ito, Takashi; Higemoto, Wataru; Luetkens, H.*

JPS Conference Proceedings (Internet), 2, p.010209_1 - 010209_5, 2014/03

$$mu$$$$^{+}$$SR experiments on yttrium iron garnet (YIG) single crystals under applied temperature gradient were planned to investigate thermally perturbed magnetization dynamics in YIG, which carries a spin current. A feasibility $$mu$$$$^{+}$$SR study was performed in the D1 area, J-PARC MUSE using YIG single crystals without applied temperature gradient. Conventional pulsed $$mu$$$$^{+}$$SR measurements were carried out under a longitudinal magnetic field of 0.1 T to align the direction of magnetic domains in YIG. The longitudinal relaxation rate was obtained as a function of temperature below 300 K. No significant temperature variation was found below 150 K, ensuring that the implanted muons are stationary at low temperatures. In the presentation, we described the temperature-gradient experiment in preparation as well as details of the feasibility $$mu$$$$^{+}$$SR study.

Microscopic evidence for long-range magnetic ordering in the $$Gamma$$$$_{8}$$ ground quartet systems Sm$$Tr$$$$_{2}$$Al$$_{20}$$ ($$Tr$$: Ti, V, Cr)

Ito, Takashi; Higemoto, Wataru; Ninomiya, Kazuhiko; Sakai, Akito*; Nakatsuji, Satoru*

Journal of the Physical Society of Japan, 81(Suppl.B), p.SB050_1 - SB050_4, 2012/12

Recently, $$RT_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ compounds ($$R$$: rare earth, $$T$$: transition metal) have attracted much attention due to interesting physical properties closely related to their caged-structure. Each $$R$$ ion is confined in a Frank-Kasper cage consisting of 16 Al atoms and the large coordination number leads to strong $$c$$-$$f$$ hybridization. In addition, the Frank-Kasper cage allows various multipole degrees of freedom for the $$f$$-electrons at low $$T$$ because of a highly symmetric crystalline-electric-field (CEF). Among the $$RT_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ series, Pr$$T_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ ($$T$$: Ti, V) and Sm$$T_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ ($$T$$: Ti, V, Cr) exhibit both these features. The $$Gamma_3$$ ground doublet systems Pr$$T_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ ($$T$$: Ti, V) show a phase transition at $$T_O$$ = 2.0K (Ti) and 0.6K (V). The order parameter is believed to be an electric quadrupole active in the $$Gamma_3$$ subspace. A possibility of the quadrupole Kondo effect has been discussed based on characteristic $$T$$-dependence in specific heat, resistivity, and magnetic susceptibility. The $$Gamma_8$$ ground quartet systems Sm$$T_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ ($$T$$: Ti, V, Cr) also exhibit a phase transition at $$T_O$$ = 6.4K (Ti), 2.3K (V), and 1.8K (Cr). A nuclear specific heat study in SmTi$$_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ suggests that the primary order parameter is a magnetic dipole in spite of field-insensitive nature of the phase boundary. A possible importance of a secondarily ordered octupole moment was discussed. We here present a microscopic study of PrTi$$_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ and Sm$$T_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ ($$T$$: Ti, V, Cr) using muon spin relaxation. In PrTi$$_2$$Al$$_{20}$$, no additional local field was observed in the ordered phase. This strongly supports the quadrupole ordering scenario. On the other hand, an appearance of a coherent local field was observed below $$T_O$$ in Sm$$T_2$$Al$$_{20}$$. This is consistent with the primary magnetic dipole ordering. The frequency distribution suggests that the magnetic structure is possibly different between the Sm$$T_2$$Al$$_{20}$$ compounds.

Multipole and superconducting state in PrIr$$_2$$Zn$$_{20}$$ probed by muon spin relaxation

We performed muon spin rotation and relaxation measurements ($$mu$$SR) in caged structural heavy fermion system PrIr$$_2$$Zn$$_{20}$$ to elucidate magnetic and superconducting properties. Temperature independent $$mu$$SR spectra were observed below 1K, indicating that the phase transition at 0.11K is non-magnetic origin, most probably pure quadrupole ordering. In the superconducting phase, no sign of unconventional superconductivity, like a broken time reversal symmetry superconductivity, is seen below $$T_c$$=0.05K. Moreover, we have observed spontaneous muon spin precession in a zero field in the paramagnetic phase below 15K, suggesting a novel coupling between $$^{141}$$Pr nuclei and muon realize in PrIr$$_2$$Zn$$_{20}$$.

Frustrated magnetic materials can remain disordered to the lowest temperatures. Such is the case for Ba$$_3$$CuSb$$_2$$O$$_9$$, which is magnetically anisotropic at the atomic scale but curiously isotropic on mesoscopic length and time scales. We find that the frustration on the triangular lattice is imprinted in a nanostructured honeycomb lattice of Cu$$^{2+}$$ ions that resists a coherent static Jahn-Teller distortion. The resulting two-dimensional random-bond spin-1/2 system on the honeycomb lattice has a broad spectrum of spin-dimer like excitations and low-energy spin degrees of freedom that retain.
