Muon and Pion Stopping Sites in Crystals from Decay-Particle Blocking

Abstract

One of the simplest disturbances of an otherwise perfect crystal is an implanted positively charged elementary particle. There is interest in the microscopic properties of such defects from both basic and applied solid state physics. On the one hand, an investigator of the fundamental properties of solids with a clear understanding of a pure system will be challenged to use his models to predict the response of the system to the presence of the elementary particle. On the other hand, the materials scientist concerned with the role of impurities, particularly hydrogen, in a real system will welcome the opportunity to study a related defect which is free of solubility limitations and defect-defect interactions. The behavior of isolated hydrogen-like interstitials touches fields such as diffusion in metals, impurity hyperfine fields in magnetic materials and paramagnetic defects in insulators and semiconductors.
