Abstract

A novel set-up for fast muon-spin-rotation experiments with an effective time resolution of (150 ± 10) ps (full-width at half-maximum) of the 'prompt peak' is described. A new method of extending the histogram length of the hitherto existing data-acquisition system allows the use of the full time range of the clock with a histogram length of approximately 5 μs and pile-up and second-muon gates with the same length. The whole electronics consists of only four NIM modules and an EG&G Ortec 'Picosecond Time Analyzer' mod. 9308 connected to a personal computer. The performance of the novel spectrometer is demonstrated in measurements of the hyperfine precession frequency of muonium in fused quartz, liquid water, and different silsesquioxanes at room temperature.
