Application of µSR to Radiation Damage in Metals
Proton-irradiated Al, Cu and Ni foils have been investigated by the μSR technique. No trapping of μ+ has been observed in the temperature range investigated (<300 K). In Ni a temperature-independent increase of the depolarisation rate by a factor of three is found for the irradiated target. This change is attributed to field inhomogeneities produced by defects.
