Abstract

We report μSR experiments on single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWnT). We find that injected muons form vacuum-like muonium (Mu) with a large probability (∼40%). We discuss the temperature (T) dependence of the transverse field (TF) signal of the diamagnetic fraction as well as the longitudinal field (LF) signal of Mu.
