In a μSR experiment, nearly 100% spin-polarized muons μ+ are implanted into the sample one at a time. The positively charged μ+ thermalize at interstitial lattice sites, where they act as magnetic microprobes. In a magnetic material, the muon spin precesses in the local field μ0Hint at the muon site with the Larmor frequency νμ = μ0γμ/(2π)Hint [muon gyromagnetic ratio γμ/(2π) = 135.5 MHz T−1].

μSR experiments under pressure were performed at the μE1 beamline of the Paul Scherrer Institute (Villigen, Switzerland), where an intense high-energy (pμ = 100 MeV/c) beam of muons is implanted in the sample through the pressure cell. The low-background GPS (πM3 beamline) (37) and low-temperature LTF (πM3.3) instruments were used to study the single-crystalline and polycrystalline samples of MoTe2 at ambient pressure.
