Title

Optimizing muSR Analysis

Abstract

Muon spin spectroscopy is a method of investigating the properties of various types of condensed matter by implanting a beam of spin polarized muons in a small sample of the material and analyzing the precession or relaxation of the muon spin in the local magnetic field. The data we get from these experiments and the programs currently used to visualize or analyze the date can be cumbersome to download and work with. Our project was to create a smaller program that would allow a more intuitive and dynamic visualization and analysis of the data.
