Magnetism in quasi-low-dimensional systems investigated with muon spin rotation and high magnetic fields

Abstract:

This thesis presents the investigation of magnetism in a selection of low-dimensional systems and its relation to other physical properties, such as superconductivity. The techniques employed are muon spin rotation and pulsed magnetic field magnetisation. The ability of muons to directly probe the local field is used to study SrFeAsF, which is a parent compound of the high-temperature superconducting pnictides. This revealed that the magnetic and structural transitions are separated in this...
