Abstract: A theoretical discussion of the features expected for the longitudinal-field relaxation signal of axially symmetric Mu states in polycrystalline samples is presented here. It is shown that the muon polarization may be described by the sum of an exponentially relaxed component and a non-relaxed one. Using this approximation, an analysis framework that allows extracting the spin-flip rate from polycrystalline data is also sketched. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
