The study on the electronic state of muon as pseudo-hydrogen (represented by the elemental symbol Mu) by muon spin rotation has long been appreciated as one of the few methods to experimentally access the electronic state of dilute hydrogen (H) in semiconductors and dielectrics. Meanwhile, theoretical predictions on the electronic state of H in these materials by first-principles calculations using density functional theory (DFT) do not always agree with the observed states of Mu. In order to… 


Oxide muonics: II. Modelling the electrical activity of hydrogen in wide-gap and high-permittivity dielectrics
Following the prediction and confirmation that interstitial hydrogen forms shallow donors in zinc oxide, inducing electronic conductivity, the question arises as to whether it could do so in other
Hall effect analysis of bulk ZnO comparing different crystal growth techniques
The relaxation time approximation was used to interpret Hall effect data from n-type ZnO bulk samples grown using the high-pressure melt, seeded-chemical-vapor transport, and hydrothermal techniques.
Behaviour of hydrogen in wide band gap oxides
The defect formation energies and atomic geometries of interstitial hydrogen in its different charge states in a number of wide band gap oxides are calculated by the Heyd, Scuseria, Ernzerhof hybrid
Experimental confirmation of the predicted shallow donor hydrogen state in zinc oxide.
It is confirmed that interstitial protium may act as a shallow donor in zinc oxide, by direct spectroscopic observation of its muonium counterpart, and results for the cadmium chalcogenides suggest that such shallow donor states are generic to the II-VI compounds.
Muon-induced luminescence in KBr.
The energy spectrum of the luminescence induced by positive muons stopped in KBr shows a Gaussian line shape and suggests that the initial state of the observed luminescent is a triplet STE state that is specific to the muon(ium)-KBr system.
Muonium fluorescence: Anomalous muonium center and relaxed excited state in KBr.
A slowly decaying fluorescence induced by implanted positive muons has been observed in KBr by using the time-resolved direct-photon-counting method, strongly suggesting a coupled state between muonium centers and radiation-induced relaxed excited states as a model for the anomalous mu onium centers.
Muonium centers in the alkali halides
Muonium centers (Mu) in single crystals and powdered alkali halides have been studied using the high-timing-resolution transverse field μSR technique. Mu has been observed and its hyperfine parameter
