2.2.2 $\mu$SR spectrometer

The muon beam is tightly collimated to the sample size at the end of the beam pipe, which is sealed with a thin Kapton or mylar window. Muons pass through the beam window and reach the spectrometer: a complex of a cryostat, particle counters and magnets. Fig.11 shows a schematic top-view of a typical $\mu$SR spectrometer.
