Abstract

μ+ SR measurements have been performed on Cr single crystals at temperatures 60 mK≤T≤295 K in applied magnetic fields 0≤Bappl≤1.5 T. The temperature dependence of the observed precession frequencies and transverse relaxation rates can be explained by the assumption that the μ+ are hopping between adjacent tetrahedral interstices. At temperatures T≤11 K evidence for an interaction between the μ+ and the spin-density waves in Cr has been found. The directions and magnitudes of the lattice magnetic moments are unaffected by the applied magnetic fields.
