Stephen Blundell - DFT+μ: Putting experimental μSR on a firm theoretical footing

  • blank blank

Abstract The development of DFT methods for muon site location [1-2] has led to a revolution in the way in which condensed matter science with muons is now conducted [3]. I will describe why this problem is important, and review some recent highlights of how this new “DFT+μ” technique has led to new understanding of muon-induced distortions in frustrated systems [4], decoherence of quantum information in nuclear spin systems [5], and even resolved an old problem concerning a prototypical antiferromagnet [6]. I will give an outlook on where this field is going and point to some potential future developments. References [1]J. Möller, D. Ceresoli, T. Lancaster, N. Marzari, S. Blundell, Phys. Rev.
