Muon spin resonance experiments have been performed for the μ+ in H2O and for some other cases, and the first observation has been made of the time-differential pattern of muon spin resonance, namely, spin precession around the r.f. field vector under various resonance conditions. In the present experiment, a high-power pulsed r.f. field was effectively applied to the pulsed muon beam in our laboratory of the KEK-Booster Meson Facility (BOOM). Potential uses of muon spin resonance, particularly for research in the border regions of solid state and nuclear physics, are discussed in comparison with the conventional spin rotation method.
